techUK, BEAMA and NMI are hosting a workshop that will input to the independent Task & Finish Group on Industry Resilience for Critical Minerals.
The Task & Finish Group was commissioned by Minister Ghani and announced in the recent Critical Minerals Refresh publication. The group will deliver a report to the Government by the end of the year which will examine the critical mineral dependences, risks and mitigations of key industry sectors.
This workshop will focus on the electronics sector. The aim be to gather insights and evidence from industry to characterise the dependencies and risks to the security of supply of critical minerals for the UK Electronics sector. techUK, BEAMA and NMI will then produce a write-up and short paper to capture this and provide an input to the wider Task & Finish Group.
