Innovations in Rare Earths and Critical Minerals

2023 Special Symposium sponsored by the Consortium for Rare Earth Technologies (CREaTe)

Critical minerals - such as the rare earth elements lithium, graphite and cobalt - support a wide variety of modern technologies. They power many current and future applications in our world. The Innovations In Rare Earths and Critical Minerals Special Symposium addresses scientific and technological innovations that support and advance the domestic supply chain for these minerals.

Join us for the largest gathering of rare earths and critical minerals experts in North America this June 19-21 in Washington, D.C.
