Research

Santiago’s research focused on responsible industrial transformation, governance strategies, and ethical aspects in the framework of sustainability, safety, and circularity values. He is currently working on SISTEM Project: Social Innovation for Sustainable Treatment of European Metals (EIT Raw Materials a body of the European Union). In 2020, Santiago received a grant for his project Governance Strategies & Ethical Aspects of Material Requirements for a Just Energy Transition (Energy Transition Lab). And, he worked with the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management of the Netherlands and TU Delft researching Toward a Safer Chemical Industry by Safe by Design.

  • SISTEM Project (2020-2021) 
    Social Innovation for Sustainable Treatment of European Metals. Project supported by the EIT Raw Materials a body of the European Union. Public-Private Collaboration with Spain, Finland, Italy, Greece, and The Netherlands. SISTEM provides an opportunity to lead the assessment of the social performance of the mining and metal industry in the framework of sustainability, safety, and circularity values. The TU Delft team consists of Behnam Taebi, Jaco Quist, Eveline Vreede, and Santiago Echeverri. 

  • Energy Transition Lab (2021)
    Governance Strategies & Ethical Aspects of Material Requirements for a Just Energy Transition with the Energy Transition Lab (TU Delft). Raw materials, and their applicability in technologies for renewable energy, have been widely explored from the technical perspective. However, governance strategies and ethical aspects seem to be less prominent in the view of key stakeholders in this complex environment. VTI and ESS have decided to join efforts to explore responsible sourcing of metals while identifying knowledge gaps from a governance and ethics perspective. Researcher Santiago Echeverri is supported by Jaco Quist, Behnam Taebi, and Gijsbert Korevaar during this journey.
  • Safe by Design (2019)
    Toward a Safer Chemical Industry by Safe by Design. Project sponsored by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management of the Netherlands and TU Delft. Researcher Santiago was supported by Genserik Reniers, and Pieter van Gelder.
