This workshop will introduce different perspectives on supply chain risks and how companies can address them. Plenary talks include experiences on advising companies on raw materials risks, perspectives of supplying and developing countries, and how governments and industries prepare for changing raw materials needs in view of the green transition. A special focus will be put on how a pandemic such as COVID-19 influences supply risks.

In the working groups, a decision-making for industries is developed and discussed, using example cases of Cobalt, REEs, and Rhenium. Active participation is welcome. The discussion will feed into the further work of IRTC-Business and participants are encouraged to use the ongoing dialogue in IRTC-Business as a networking opportunity and and a platform for further international exchange.

The workshop will take place on the 19 of May via Zoom. The detailed program can be found here.
