In February we launch our cross-disciplinary seminar series, with Dr Adrian Jones, Department of Earth Sciences, presenting 'Rare Earth Elements from Mine to Magnet'.

The sustainable supply of geological materials to industry can be portrayed by the Rare Earth Element market, which has seen an era of geographical dominance not entirely related to the distribution of source minerals. In this seminar Dr Adrian Jones, UCL Earth Sciences, describes some of the recent trends in this strategic market sector, and the impacts on industry and government alike.

The talk will be followed by Q & A session and a networking reception with drinks and nibbles.
