6-9 Oct 2020 | Virtual Conference


With the ongoing COVID19 crisis, the organizing committee of the ERES 2020 conference has decided to move the conference to a virtual venue, keeping the original dates foreseen for the conference 6-9 Oct 2020.

This is an unfortunate but needed, measure to safeguard the health of all conference delegates. We hope however that it might also allow more people to join us from around the world and participate in a vivid exchange of knowledge and ideas on Rare Earths.

The online platform used will be Zoom Webinar and the registration form is now updated with the revised registration fees. Detailed information and instructions for participation will be provided to all delegates.

We will all keep Delphi in our mind and heart but we will also focus on organizing an inspiring ERES 2020 Virtual Conference.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Virtual ERES 2020.

Registration is now open.

Did we look everywhere?
Following 5 years of extensive research on locating European REE resources what did we find?
Have we left any REE-stone unturned?

REE processing technologies


Is it all about separation?
What are the technologies that can provide sustainable REE separation?
Can they take place in Europe?

Closing the loop on REE


Can it close?
Can urban recycling transcend from bulk metals to critical – trace metals?
Is REE urban mining feasible?
Are industrial wastes the next main REE resource?
Do they make sense only for Sc?

Emerging REE


Have you heard about Sc?
Why so much work on Sc?
Will it ever go in mass scale production?
Does Europe have a claim in the Sc race?
Are there new REE applications out here that can change the status quo of REE production?

REE Market and applications


New supply crisis or new bubble on the horizon?
Is the REE race restarting?
Will the world truly run short on vital enabling elements in the next years?
What happens to the not-so-critical REEs (the balance problem)?

The conference will include a special round-table session


Is there a future for a European REE industry?
Before asking the local oracle all these questions, we invite all stakeholders and experts to close the conference with an outlook to the future, baring the lessons of the recent past.
