RawMatCop Call for Applications – Uncover the power of Copernicus for raw materials solutions!

Apply for the call by 5 July 2019!

In December 2017, as a result of the call – Copernicus Building Skills Actions – from the European Commission/DG GROW, EIT RawMaterials was awarded a three-year action, the RawMatCop 2018-2020 Programme. The RawMatCop 2018-2020 Programme builds on the results and experiences from the one-year RawMatCop 2017 Programme, also awarded by DG GROW and carried out by EIT RawMaterials and post-doctoral researchers hosted by EIT RawMaterials partners over 12 months in 2017-2018.

The aim of the RawMatCop 2018-2020 Programme is to develop skills, expertise, demonstrations and applications at the intersection between Earth observation data, specifically Copernicus data, and the raw materials sector. Moreover, the RawMatCop 2018-2020 Programme will share its results and encourage knowledge transfer and skills dissemination both with the partners of EIT RawMaterials but also with other sectors and Innovation Communities.

The 2018-2020 Programme covers four key activities:

  • RawMatCop Post-Doctoral Research Projects
  • RawMatCop Academic Placement Projects with Industry/Authorities
  • RawMatCop Lifelong Learning programme – RawMatCop Academy
  • RawMatCop Dissemination Event – RawMatCop User Forum 2020

As a result, the EIT RawMaterials would like to announce the RawMatCop 2018-2020 Call for Applications for the next cohort of:

  • 2-3 Post-Doctoral Research Scholarship Projects, duration 1 year
  • 2-3 Academic Placement Projects with Industry/Authorities, duration 1 year

Applications should be submitted to EIT RawMaterials via email to rawmatcop@eitrawmaterials.eu.

Deadline for applications is 5 July 2019, 12:00 CEST.

Application contents, including budget calculation, evaluation process and criteria for assessment, timeline and application template can be found in the attached Call for Applications.

Scope of the Post-Doctoral Research Scholarship projects and the Academic Placements with Industry/Authorities should address one of the following domains of the Copernicus-related data for:

  • Raw material prospecting and exploration
  • Raw material extraction and mining activities
  • Secondary raw material resources
