The RawMaterials Academy is the overarching brand of all the education activities of the EIT RawMaterials. These range from innovative education projects launched via calls and run by the KIC’s partners to a number of centrally operated projects. Activities across the entire ecosystem of learners – PhD students, Masters’ students, industrial partners, professionals within the raw materials sector, and wider society – foster new ways of learning and teaching by linking academia, industry and research organisations. The aims of the RawMaterials Academy are:
- To introduce society as a whole to the importance and relevance of raw materials and incite interest in topics related to raw materials
- To train current and future stakeholders to the technical standards required by the raw materials industry today – contextually across the full raw materials value chain
- To foster the entrepreneurial and innovation skills, knowledge and attitudes needed for the entre- and intrapreneurs of tomorrow
To this end, the RawMaterials Academy offers education programmes through four strands:
In addition to activities across these four areas, various educational events and workshops are organised both centrally and through the Co-location Centres over the entire year. One of these is the Raw Materials University Days. Please keep an eye on the Events page for more information!
