Tackling skills shortages

We identify existing skills shortages among different stakeholder groups and develop syllabi and courses to increase capacity for sustainable raw materials management.


The COBALT website provides all necessary information on the project and its activities. It will foster information exchange and networking among stakeholder groups by providing interactive formats and databases.
