MinFuture: Global material flows and demand-supply forecasting for mineral strategies

Global demand for minerals is growing rapidly, driven by population growth, urbanisation and an increasingly diverse range of technical applications. Information on material flows and complex supply chains is fragmented, which makes it difficult to develop strategies for securing raw material supply. The EU funded project MinFuture enhances collaboration among key institutions that provide or use global resource data. It develops and tests a common methodology to measure global cycles of materials. MinFuture runs from December 2016 until November 2018.

Final conference: "Putting raw material data in a system context to improve monitoring of the physical economy"

The intention of this conference "Monitoring the physical economy requires putting raw material data in a system context" was to present, reflect on and refine key recommendations from the MinFuture project on a monitoring system for the physical economy.

The presentations held and recommendations made will soon be available via this website.
