Project duration: 1 January 2018 – 31 December 2020


Educate T-shaped professionals for the full raw materials value chain with a deep expertise in sustainable functional materialsand a deep entrepreneurship mindset.

The solution (technology)

AMIS will tackle the theme substitution of critical or toxic materials in products and for optimised performance. It will also cover material chain optimisation for end-of-life products, and product and services design for the circular economy — all of which are central themes of the EIT RawMaterials. The primary focus of the adaptation is on metal and mineral raw materials. Bio-base and polymer materials are covered in view of their substitution potential and other materials in the context of multi-material product recycling. In addition, the AMIS programme includes a solid package of courses and project work in innovation and entrepreneurship.
