Strengthening the European Raw-Materials Sector


Ensuring the continued competitiveness of the EU mining industry both inside and outside the region, STRADE generates an objective and data-driven analysis of the EU mineral raw-material industry’s international competitiveness. The project assists in securing raw material supplies through promoting:

  • Investment from EU and non-EU actors into the EU’s mineral raw-materials sector;
  • EU companies’ participation in exploration, investment and technology supply in non-EU countries; and
  • Cooperation between EU and other raw material producing countries based on sustainable practices and improved competitiveness.
