Critical raw materials – The hidden risk in the technologies enabling modern electronics
• Are you aware of the threats and opportunities related to availability of raw materials in the ICT and electronics sector? Modern ICT and electronics technologies rely on a complex mixture of modern material, some of which are considered ‘critical’ and may be at risk due to supply disruption.
• Are you aware of the role such materials play in the value chain for key applications and your business?
CRM_InnoNet is offering this free workshop at SEMICON Europa on 6th October 2014 – an opportunity for the European Electronics Industry to discuss the development of a European roadmap and European policy recommendations relating to the substitution of critical raw materials in electronic components.
The workshop presents a superb opportunity to learn more about the risks of the supply of raw materials vital to the sector and is applicable to all stakeholders of the value chain with interest in critical raw materials.
Presentations will include a value chain analysis for key applications as well as the ICT and electronics industry. There will also be an interactive session on critical raw materials in the ICT sector. The CRM_InnoNet consortium is seeking YOUR input into so make sure you don’t miss out!
