“Enhancing the Rare Earth Elements Research and Innovation Capacity of Türkiye Project (REE Project)”, co-financed by the European Union and the Republic of Türkiye is being implemented by the end beneficiary of the Project, the Directorate General for Industry (SGM) and Project Partners the Directorate General of Mineral Research and Exploration (MTA) and Munzur University Rare Earth Elements Application and Research Centre (MUNTEAM) within the framework of the Competitive Sectors Programme which is carried out by the Ministry of Industry and Technology, Republic of Türkiye.


REE Project aims to establish a sustainable REE supply chain for Türkiye's economic development by increasing Türkiye's national REE R&D capacity.

The sectors such as high-tech, renewable energy, vehicle electric, digital technology and aviation where high-tech products are involved, use REE-based products in their manufacturing and their REE demands are increasing day by day. It is of great importance to meet this demand and to play a critical role in the international REE supply chain. The first step in acquiring this role is to increase R&D capacities of REE in Türkiye and to expand global business networks.
