Brussels, 29 April 2009 – The objective of this study is to support the European Parliament’s ITRE Committee in its work on the EU’s industrial and energy policy and to give advice on the following issues:

  • Why is the issue of resource scarcity back on the agenda? 
  • What are the strategic conclusions for the EU?
