What role will the energy transition play in setting the future raw materials' needs and which will be the challenges that will follow? And then, which will the European economy's perspectives be, as it is so dependent on third countries for its “critical” raw materials' supply?

It underlines the consequences and risks that Europe has to face due to the shortage of the “critical” raw materials that are essential for winning the energy transition challenge.
