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 2018 – 31 March 2021 Objective Rare earth elements (REE) are critical raw materials imported in large numbers for modern industrial applications but almost exclusively extracted out of Europe, thus leaving the continent completely dependent on imports. Europe-based REE production shall cover a significant amount of the domestic need and reduce […]Read more ›
Project duration: 1 January 2019 – 31 March 2022 Objective Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) are the main material used whenever rigidity and lightweight are required. Within these features, CFRPs can be used in a large range of applications. Nevertheless, this material has today very low recyclability, high cost, and high carbon footprint – drawbacks that […]Read more ›
Project duration: 1 April 2018 – 30 June 2021 Objective RESEERVE is a RIS KAVA project, mapping the mineral sources of the six ESEE countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro and FYRO Macedonia, currently not included in the existing data platforms. The main project outcome is the creation of the West Balkan Mineral […]Read more ›
Project duration: 1 January 2016 – 31 December 2018 Objective ResiduFlex unites partners with strong expertise and infrastructure in metallurgical residue valorisation/mineral matrix conversion, i.e. the major volumetric fraction to (construction) materials by making a broad variety related technologies more easily accessible throughout Europe, and by offering a more diverse range of solutions compared to […]Read more ›
Project duration: 1 April 2017 – 31 March 2020 Objective Millions of Photovoltaic Panels (PV) modules have been installed worldwide over the past three decades without implementation of a circular value-chain by now. In order to keep the containing critical and precious metals in the loop, RESIELP brings together technologies from different fields to recover […]Read more ›
