EuroPean trAining NetwOrk on Rare eArth elements environMental trAnsfer: from rock to human

Project description

Making sure an independent supply of raw materials from the earth has a green life cycle

From smartphones to petroleum refining, rare earth elements (REE) are part of our way of living and producing. Mostly produced in China, access to REE is strategic for Europe. Moreover, it is shown that REE operation produces toxic waste. Although several research and industrial projects were launched to identify European REE-stocks and greener extraction processes, the environmental risk has not yet been considered. The PANORAMA project aims to consider the environmental impact of REE in its entirety. (Geo)chemists, (hydro)geologists and (eco)toxicologists, gathered within a consortium of 14 academic partners and 4 non-academic partners, will enable 15 PhD students to develop skillsets in basic and cross-cutting research. PANORAMA training shall enable them to obtain secure jobs in the academic, industrial, commercial or political sectors, all within a high-level European intersectoral collaborative framework.
