WP1: Multi-stakeholder platform
Implementation of a Multi-Stakeholder Platform to address transversal issues
Workpackage (WP) 1 is expected to function as the multistakeholder platform. In this WP, all of the key players will meet and address the transversal issues of refractory metals. Managed by the consortium, it gathers experts from the three External Experts Committees: Policy/Society, Technology and Market.
This workpackage assesses the current and future selected metal needs of the European industry. It also examines to what extent these can be met with European and non-European sources, and explores innovative strategies for the improvement of the reliability and affordability of supply for metals and metal-based intermediate products. It will deliver guidelines, define indicators and potentially propose (new) standards. This knowledge will be used to analyse the data collected and the innovation proposed in the four technical WPs.
