Critical Minerals & Energy Investment World Conference and Exhibition is Europe’s only event dedicated to critical
minerals sector discussing all aspects from exploration opportunities for traditional and emerging commodities,
investment strategies to expanding downstream processing to meet future global demand.
This annual event examines critical mineral resources in Europe, Asia, Middle East, Americas and Africa to
highlight the growing importance and role critical minerals play in clean energy transition, sustainment of
the digital world, development of new technologies from mobile phones to fighter jets, critical infrastructure,
transport, security and renewable energy.
EU predicts that critical minerals including lithium and rare earths soon will be more important than oil and gas and plans to reduce dependency for critical minerals on countries including China, where 90% of rare earths and 60% of lithium are processed. EU intends to identify potential projects along the supply chain, from extraction to refining and from processing to recycling, as well as build up strategic reserves, where supply is at risk.
The event looks at key elements to responsible sourcing and processing, green investment
economy, as well as hydrogen that plays a crucial role in the global energy market’s transition to a low-carbon
We anticipate 200 senior level executives, including over 25 mining companies ranging from explorers, juniors to
mid-tier producers, majors and processors for two days of partnering, networking and business matching.
Join us at an invaluable platform to get access to agenda covering latest industry issues, exhibition floor as well as
1-2-1 meeting matching tool for new partnerships & business opportunities including: Presentation Opportunities & Panel Discussions, Ministerial Luncheon, Special Critical Minerals in Defence & Security Industry Breakfast, Networking Drinks, Bespoke Event Partnership & Sponsorship Options.

HELD IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE GREENWICH HOUSE
MiningInvestment Series is proud to announce its inaugural Australian event dedicated at the growing Australia-Europe minerals trade relationship. Western Australia has become the epicentre for the next technological change in the mining sector and is well positioned to support EU plans for raw materials supply chain diversification & recycling. The event also explores hydrogen that plays a crucial role in the global energy market’s transition to a low-carbon economy.
Mining & Energy Investment Australia - Europe Conference & Exhibition is held in Perth, a stable and prominent regional financial centre, the event is well poised to attract global investors and companies amidst the current turmoil and uncertainty surrounding major global and regional financial hubs.
For 2022 edition, we are continuing with a hybrid model to enable you to network with colleagues from all around the globe, hear expert analysis, secure deals in private video chats, and debate the latest opportunities and challenges of the industry simply without encountering any travel restrictions or social distancing measures.
We anticipate 300 senior level executives, including over 25 mining companies ranging from explorers, juniors to mid-tier producers and majors for two days of partnering, networking and business matching.
Join us at an invaluable platform to get access to agenda covering latest industry issues, exhibition floor as well as 1-2-1 meeting matching tool for new partnerships & business opportunities.
Australia and the European Union (EU) enjoy a constructive and substantial bilateral relationship built on a shared commitment to freedom and democratic values and a like-minded approach to a broad range of trade, cultural and other international issues.
The West Australian European business community notes the excellent progress made by Australia and the European Union in advancing negotiations for a Free Trade Agreement(FTA) since agreement to pursue an FTA was announced at the G20 in Brisbane in 2014. The commencement of formal Negotiations was launched in the joint announcement made on the 18th June 2018 in Canberra, by the EU Commissioner for Trade and the Australian Trade Minister. There have now been 7 rounds of comprehensive negotiations with an aim of concluding the FTA by 2022. As Australia’s second largest trading partner, bilateral trade in goods between the EU and Australia has risen steadily in recent years, reaching almost €48 billion last year. The sectors which make up the bulk of EU exports to Australia are transport equipment, machinery and appliances, chemicals, food, and services. Bilateral trade in services is around €28 billion. The agreement could increase trade in goods between the two partners by over a third when the FTA is finalised.
EU Economy FAST FACTS
The European Union (EU) is:
The world’s largest economy with a population of 448 million people
Is a global nuclear and space power
Has a GDP of USD$18.7 trillion and averaged GDP growth rate of 1.6% across the EU27 nations
As a bloc, the EU is Australia’s:
Second largest trading partner
Third largest export destination
Second largest services export market
Is the biggest source of Foreign Direct Investment

In 2020 the EU Commission announced plans to diversify its access to rare earth materials used in producing "strategic technologies" and consumer goods like smart phones, electric cars and televisions. By 2050, the EU will need around 60 times more lithium, essential for e-mobility, and 15 times more cobalt, which is used in electric car batteries. EU could also need 10 times more rare earth minerals which are used for permanent magnets in electric vehicles, digital devices or wind generators.
The first step of the EU's action plan is to launch an industry-driven European Raw Materials Alliance in the third quarter, "initially to build resilience and open strategic autonomy for the rare earths and magnets value chain, before extending to other raw material areas," the European Commission said. The EU will also develop sustainable financing criteria for mining and processing by the end of 2021.
While diversifying supply is among the first steps in the bloc's strategy, it will also look to make better use of its own resources and recycling. The regions has four industrial projects in sustainable mining and processing underway at a cost of nearly €2 billion that are expected to cover 80% of the EU's lithium requirements in the battery sector by 2025.
Why critical raw materials are important
Link to industry - non-energy raw materials are linked to all industries across all supply chain stages
Modern technology - technological progress and quality of life rely on access to a growing number of raw materials. For example, a smartphone might contain up to 50 different kinds of metals, all of which contribute to its small size, light weight and functionality.
Environment – raw materials are closely linked to clean technologies. They are irreplaceable in solar panels, wind turbines, electric vehicles, and energy-efficient lighting.
