University Courses

By 2050, through its ambitious Green Deal strategy, the EU has set out to achieve climate neutrality by transitioning to a more modern, sustainable, and resilient economy. This will not be possible without a steady and secure supply of the so-called critical raw materials (CRMs): metals and minerals that are vital across multiple industries. 

The AGEMERA university courses focus on the impact of CRMs in relation with the green and digital transition. Furthermore, the courses aim to help students in understanding the whole value chain of CRMs concerning sustainable production within Europe.
