Raw & Circular Economy Expedition (RACE)

Join the Raw & Circular Economy Expedition (RACE), a 2-week learning journey across Europe and along the raw materials value chain. RACE is designed for Master students, sustainability pioneers keen to deepen their understanding of the pressing, raw material challenges of Future Mobility. Help us unlock solutions to making mobility sustainable for Europe!

In the view of the current COVID-19 outbreak developments, the EIT RawMaterials Academy is announcing that the planned physical RACE 2020 cannot go ahead as originally planned. Reaching this decision was not easy. However, the health and safety of the participants as well as all the industrial and research stakeholders involved are of the highest priority for us.

However, the EIT RawMaterials Academy confirms the RACE 2021 will go ahead as planned! Click here to register your interest in RACE 2021, in order to be informed personally by the RawMaterials Academy when the Call for RACE 2021 Applications is launched next spring 2021.

To top it off: The EIT RawMaterials Academy will not leave you stranded without a RACE event in 2020! We are pleased to announce the RACE is going global and digital in 2020. Stay tuned to find out how you can participate and get involved in the Global Digital RACE 2020.
