ERA-MIN 2 Final Conference and Seminar of Call 2017 projects
18 November 2021 at 13:00 - 19 November 2021 at 16:30
The ERA-MIN 2 Final Conference and Final Seminar of Call 2017 projects will take place virtually on 18-19 November 2021.
ERA-MIN 2 comprises a progressive, pan-European network of 21 public research funding organizations from 13 EU countries/regions, one EU Associated Country (Turkey), and 4 Non-EU countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile and South Africa). Since 2016, ERA-MIN 2 has strengthened the coordination of research and innovation programmes in the field of non-energy, non-agricultural raw materials (construction, industrial and metallic minerals) through funding of demand driven research on primary and secondary resources, and substitution of critical raw materials under a circular economy approach. Through 3 joint transnational calls, ERA-MIN gave the opportunity to the raw materials community to apply to worldwide coordinated funding, gaining access to leading knowledge and new markets, while reducing fragmentation of R&I funding across Europe and globally.
The ERA-MIN 2 Final Conference and Final Seminar of Call 2017 projects will show the achievements after 5 years of bridging with the recent successor pan-European network on raw materials – ERA-MIN3 (2020-2025). The conference will gather all the funded projects representatives from the ERA-MIN 2 Research Programme to disseminate their project results to stakeholders and promote the uptake of project results by end-users, civil society, or policymakers. Indeed, the final project results could contribute to the JRC RMIS Knowledge Gate. Moreover, applied research projects ending at TRL 4-5 could apply to EIT RM calls for scale-up towards higher TRL levels and the market.
Michel Vanavermaete, EIT RawMaterials Innovation Hub Director at CLC Central and West, will deliver a speech during this event.
