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 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 ›
Project duration: 1 April 2017 – 30 September 2019 Objective The goal of the project is the scaling up of the process for the recycled carbon fiber surface modification and thermoplastic compound manufacturing, thus leading to high performance eco-innovative composite materials. By the optimization of the RCF surface modification process and of the compounding process, […]Read more ›
Project duration: 1 April 2016 – 31 December 2018 Objective The main objective of the project is to come up with a solution for recovery of critical metals, such as indium and germanium, and increase production of base metals, i.e. tin, from polymetallic alloys formed in the production of zinc and lead. The solution (technology) […]Read more ›
