The Centre Of Expertise on Resources (COE-R) has been created by HCSS, TNO and Trinomics. It supports industry and government to timely and effectively anticipate strategic opportunities and risks related to the sustainable supply of resources. The focus is on abiotic and biotic (non-energy) resources, referring to metals, minerals and agri-food inputs that are relevant for the Dutch economy and society. It pays particular attention to the geopolitical and broader international economic dimensions of the resource challenge, whilst taking relevant security and sustainability issues into account. As part of this initiative, the COE-R organises thematic high-level workshops. The publications of this centre can be found here. The latest Issue Brief on Deep Sea Mining can be downloaded from this link.
