The simulation took place entirely online in a custom-made, interactive environment accessible in the browser. The main theme of the event was the challenges of interactions between science and policy. We explored that issue using the case of critical minerals that are necessary for an energy transition from fossil fuels to renewables. Participants came from the domains of both science and policy. They worked in pairs consisting of one scientist and one policy maker.
The Raw Materials Challenge simulation is based on the Cascading Climate Impacts simulation developed in the Horizon 2020 project CASCADES, in collaboration with our expert partners.
