ERECON: European Rare Earth Competency Network
Type: Industry Group
The European Rare Earths Competency Network brings together experts to look at ways of addressing the issue of supply security. ERECON is guided by a Steering Committee that sets the agenda of the Working Group meetings of rare earth experts. Each Working Group has a different mandate: the first focuses on the primary production of rare earths in the EU, the second looks at resource efficiency and recycling and the third on trends and challenges. Granta contributed to the technical delivery of working group III, representing the combined industry trends and demands observed during other collaborations and from groups such as the ADS Design for Environment working group to ensure that these views were adequately represented during the development of the Strategic Implementation Plan.
