EIT RawMaterials Academy is pleased to announce that the University of Milano-Bicocca, Kaunas University of Technology, Riga Technical University and UiT, the Arctic University (subject to the accession of Norway to Horizon Europe), have been selected to host Raw Materials University Days in 2021. Building on the massive success of the virtually delivered Raw Materials University Days in 2020, EIT RawMaterials Academy decided to continue to support partners to deliver these events online. The first event was hosted by the University of Milano-Bicocca on 27 May.
The overarching objective of the Raw Materials University Days is to raise awareness of the significance of raw materials in modern life and also to demonstrate their relevance to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. These interactive online events will illustrate to prospective Master students the necessary higher education pathways, including EIT-Labelled programmes, leading to meaningful and exciting careers that innovate the raw materials sector across the entire value chain, in industry, academia and research, but also as entrepreneurs and creators of start-ups.
Since 2017, 19 Raw Materials University Days events have taken place at 19 partner universities in 13 countries across six Innovation Hubs.
University of Milano-Bicocca welcomed 90 students for the first Raw Materials University Day 2021
