Conference Objective
Rare Earth resources have become vital elements  in the modern industry. With constantly increasing
applications ranging from micro-electronics to wind generators and with very few rare earth mines in
operation around the world, the rare earth elements supply and demand is in the global spotlight.  
In the framework of the EURARE:  Development of a sustainable exploitation scheme for Europe’s rare
earth ore deposits project a scientific conference on  European Rare Earth Resources will be held. The
conference will deal with topics such as
  REE importance for Europe /  supply and demand issues
  European perspective for a REE industry 
  REE exploitation policy issues  
  REE occurrences in Europe 
  REE processing (advances, new technologies, future outlook)
  REE urban mining/recycling
  Environmental Impacts (gains and losses through REE utilization and REE extraction)
