Connecting Innovation in the Raw Materials Sector
The Raw Materials Summit 2019, the flagship event organised by EIT RawMaterials, took place on 20-22 May 2019 in Berlin, Germany. The RM Summit 2019 included keynotes by prominent speakers from the raw materials sector, representatives of the EU Commission, entrepreneurs and start-up investors, as well as Venture Forum and a series of parallel sessions on the latest innovation and technology trends in the sector.
EIT RawMaterials Alumni held a competition to award 20 free places to members of the Alumni who are students or job seekers. The 20 EIT RawMaterials Alumni attendees came from 18 different countries and had previously participated in EIT RawMaterials activities ranging from EIT-Labelled programmes to EIT Jumpstarter competitions! The RM Summit 2019 was a valuable opportunity for the Alumni to get to know each other and network with professionals in the raw materials sector.
