Die Arktis ist als Thema in den Medien und der Öffentlichkeit inzwischen fast omnipräsent. Doch während hier der Fokus meist auf dem Klimawandel und den makroregionalen geographisch-biotischen, mitunter auch sozioökonomischen Dynamiken der Erderwärmung liegt, so vollziehen sich andere Wandlungsprozesse im Hohen Norden eher im Stillen. Nicht nur Rußland hat seine arktischen Gebiete remilitarisiert, auch Washington und in ersten Ansätzen wohl auch Peking scheinen in der Region ambitionierter zu werden. Wie aber steht die Europäische Union zu den geopolitischen Veränderungen vor ihrer Haustür? Will oder sollte die EU auch eine arktische Macht werden? Was ist ihr Politikansatz für den hohen Norden und auf welchen Themenfelder möchte, sollte oder kann sie überhaupt Einfluß nehmen?

Meeting-ID: 980 1903 6265
Kenncode: 768430

The current scientific and economic objectives of ESA’s and EU’s space missions and infrastructures are set in a highly political landscape of European industry and internal political dynamics, and Europe’s strategic alignment against great powers such as China, America and Russia. Despite the increasing political and economic importance of space research and exploration, legal competencies and policy activities of the EU and ESA still stand apart. This fragmentation in space policy, which is additionally flanked by national space strategies of the EU member countries, activities of the intergovernmental organization EUMETSAT and several intergovernmental bodies for satellite communications, bears important consequences and challenges for the near future of a coherent and competitive EU space policy. This Webinar seeks to identify the challenges ahead and discusses potential pathways towards a common space policy despite the complex landscape of supranational and independent intergovernmental bodies.

20. Mai 2021 | Critical Raw Materials: Achieving European Supply Security

20. Mai 2021, 12:00 - 14:00 Uhr 

Webinar via Zoom

Critical raw materials (CRMs) are essential for key future sectors, industries and technologies, including agriculture and food production, renewable energies, battery development, electric cars, robotics, "Industry 4.0", digital technologies, and artificial intelligence, just to name a few. As a result, global demand for CRMs will significantly increase in the coming years, intensifying global competition. Against this backdrop, the issue of the importance of the supply security of CRMs has become a key item on the European Commission’s political agenda in recent years.

Germany, the EU’s largest economy, is already one of the world's fifth largest importers of raw materials and is a 100% net importer of metal ores and concentrates. At the same time, however, the global supply of many CRMs is limited to a few countries (which are also often politically unstable). In addition, geo-economic and geopolitical import dependencies are increasing with the rising demand for raw materials - and with them the risks and vulnerabilities of the European economy. China already dominates many value chains and is vying to control entire global value chains for key technologies, including the necessary demand for CRMs. The increase in future European CRM import dependencies will also have an impact on Europe’s climate protection efforts, as well as foreign and development policies. A political answer will have to be found very soon.

Initial steps are being taken. Both the German government and the EU want to pay greater attention to the issue of a stable supply of CRMs in the future, on the one hand, and to strengthen domestic self-sufficiency, on the other. The German government updated its raw materials strategy in January 2020 and the EU launched a Battery Alliance and, more recently in October 2020, a European Raw Materials Alliance, which aims to achieve "strategic autonomy" in order to strengthen CRM supply security while meeting the "green" ambitions of a sustainable industrial policy with a stronger consideration of the ecological footprint in extraction, processing and end products ("sustainable mining").

But, will these initiatives be enough to diversify the EU’s CRM supplies while meeting climate objectives? If not, what additional policy measures are necessary? How will these efforts impact current relations with China and other suppliers? What countries could be potential new suppliers? What are the security, economic and other risks, but also opportunities, associated with the EU’s efforts to diversify CRM imports, build its own value chains and form strategic partnerships? This event will feature policymakers, leading experts, and industry representatives to address these and other crucial issues associated with CRM supply security.
