promoting the sustainable and responsible production and use of cobalt in all forms



After carefully monitoring Covid-19 developments, we have determined that we will not be able to hold the rescheduled conference as previously advised.

Given the continued uncertainties surrounding Covid-19 and in spite of the apparent improving situation in Europe, we believe there are too many unknowns and this decision is in the best interest of the health and safety of our members, colleagues and all attendees.

We will now concentrate on next year’s conference in Vancouver and, Covid-19 permitting, will endeavour to make it the best Cobalt Conference yet.

For the past 26 years, the Cobalt Institute (CI) has organized the only major cobalt conference annually: THE COBALT CONFERENCE which takes place in the spring and in different countries each year between North America, Europe and Asia.

The Cobalt Conference is the only event worldwide that brings the entire cobalt industry sector together. During the last 26 years, the audience has included a wide range of stakeholders from mining, refining, manufacturing and recycling companies to analysts, downstream users, trading and investing participants, among numerous others.
