Abstract: The Raw Materials Information System (RMIS) is the Commission’s reference web-based knowledge platform on non-fuel, non-agriculture raw materials (RMs) from primary (extraction/harvesting) to secondary (recycled/recovered) sources, along their entire value/supply chains. To further expand and strengthen the network of RMIS’ knowledge providers, and to promote discussion and knowledge sharing within such a network, yearly RMIS workshops are held at the JRC-Ispra. The 1st International RMIS Workshop (March 2017) aimed at gathering for the first time key stakeholders of the raw materials sectors, with a view to identify potential knowledge providers for RMIS. The 2nd RMIS Workshop (May 2018) aimed at facilitating the further development of key RMIS thematic sections, such as raw materials’ and country profiles. Following the success of the 2017 and 2018 editions, the 3rd International RMIS workshop (June 11-12, 2019, JRC Ispra site (VA), Italy) brought together 70+ participants from 20 countries, including non-EU countries such as Norway and Switzerland. In addition to DG JRC, the European Commission was represented by DG GROW, DG ENV, and DG DEVCO. Two European agencies also participated, namely the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) and the European Environment Agency (EEA), as well as the EIT Raw Materials. The 2019 RMIS workshop targeted the most recent developments in the field of primary and secondary raw materials value chains. It provided insights on how RMIS addresses knowledge and policy needs related to e.g. social and environmental assessment of raw materials supply chains, national legislation, specific Secondary Raw Materials (SRMs) and Critical Raw Materials (CRMs), and material efficient end-of-life processes. This report provides short summaries of the workshop thematic sessions, the final agenda, as well as the slides that were presented by all speakers who kindly contributed to the workshop.
