This year MiMa-Meetings have invited two internationally acclaimed lecturers and experts on the criticality of the supply of mineral resources. Don't miss the opportunity to meet professor Thomas Graedel, Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies in October, and Vaclav Smil, Professor Emeritus in November.

A new series of MiMa-Meetings on mineral resources is being launched this coming autumn. The MiMa-Meetings are organized with the aim to establish a forum for discussions of essential aspects related to supply and demand of mineral raw materials, and to increase the awareness of current global and domestic issues related to mineral resources.
