The ambitious vision of EIT RawMaterials will be realised by the creation of a structured collaboration within the Knowledge Triangle, which is the basis of the KIC model. A structured dialogue between academia, research institutes and business will facilitate an exchange of needs, ideas, research results and best practices. New entre- and intrapreneurs, with innovative ideas, will be supported to turn their ideas into business opportunities through our innovation system. This approach will leverage impact through synergies and will provide a powerful way of maximising opportunities in the raw materials sector and securing raw materials supply for Europe. Operationally the projects are coordinated and managed through the Regional Innovation Hubs called Co-Location Centres, which also support the partners in their strive for new, innovative projects.

Project duration: 1 January 2019 – 31 December 2022 The world is 3D but data used for resource characterization is limited to 2D. A new product integrates 3D image data obtained by X-ray tomography with process simulation tools used in the raw materials sector. Customers will profit from the novel analytical approach, allowing for unprecedented optimization […]Read more ›
Project duration: 1 January 2019 – 31 December 2021 Objective The aim of this project is to address the need for more efficient and waste-free production, specifically the production of corrosion-resistant components operating in marine environments. The solution (technology) Using newly developed Cu-based alloys in applications such as water turbine propellers, ship propellers, valves, manifolds and […]Read more ›
Project duration: 1 January 2018 – 31 December 2020 Objective The need for better energy storage systems is definitely a challenge for the 21st century, and lots of efforts have been devoted to building better batteries. Li-ion technology is progressively reaching its limits in terms of performances, while the current Li-ion battery market is mostly […]Read more ›
Project duration: 1 January 2020 – 31 December 2022 Objective The project ALPE will yield a “Fuel Cell”, i.e., an electrochemical device fed with hydrogen and producing electrical energy very efficiently and without pollution. Today “Fuel Cells” are not widespread and are very expensive. Indeed, they include a large amount of platinum, that is precious […]Read more ›
Project duration: 1 January 2016 – 31 December 2018 Objective The production and marketing of an innovative, low-cost and user-friendly, automated system for the microscopic characterization of ores, to improve the geometallurgical performance and to reduce the environmental impact bound to the benefit of mineral raw materials. The solution (technology) The AMCO system will upgrade […]Read more ›
