HIF new member of the European Raw Materials Alliance (ERMA)
The Helmholtz Institute for Resource Technology (HIF) at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) is now a member of the European Raw Materials Alliance (ERMA). The European Raw Materials Alliance was founded in September 2020 and aims to secure the supply of critical raw materials and advanced materials in order to strengthen the stability and competitiveness of Europe. This should be achieved by diversifying its supply chains, creating jobs, attracting investments to the raw materials value chain, fostering innovation, training young talents and contributing to the best enabling framework for raw materials and the circular economy worldwide.
By 2030, ERMA's activities will increase the production of raw materials and advanced materials and address circular economy by boosting the recovery and recycling of critical raw materials. Erma is coordinated by KIC EIT Raw Materials.
