Role in the Project
Project Manager at Fraunhofer ISI.
As a first step, Fraunhofer ISI will contribute to the definition of the list of non-energy raw materials to be studied in detail. Following this, in-depth analyses of current and foreseeable future technological trends with an impact on the demand for selected (non-energy) raw materials will be performed.
