On 23-24 September, EIT RawMaterials invites corporates, investors, startups, incubators and accelerators to join our Awareness Day Portugal, and find out how to accelerate changes towards a sustainable model for the raw materials industry in Portugal and Europe.

Minerals, metals and advanced materials are key enablers to achieve the objectives of the European Green Deal. Today, only a fraction of the most relevant raw materials are produced in Europe. Reducing dependence on imported raw materials is a priority, not only to achieve the EU’s carbon-neutral goals but also to mitigate supply risks.
