Project duration: 01 January 2016 – 31 December 2018


The aim of the EMFIS Network of Infrastructure project is to bring together parties from the EIT KIC RM highly experienced in performing comprehensive material stock-flow analyses, and who have developed own conceptual structures for database development, and who have built data reconciliation and harmonization tools.

The solution (technology)

This network will offer a platform that facilitates all future projects of the EIT KIC RM consortium in which data mining activities related to material flow and stocks plays a role. Close collaboration will be created with DG GROW, DG JRC (Petten and Ispra) and EEA, UN International Resources Panel and the OECD. It will also complement a NoI on primary materials data set up by geological surveys (RMIData4Industry), and a NoI on the Sustainability Support and Information Centre (SSIC) that aims to provide a service for industry and technology developers on how to design, develop and evaluate innovations leading to sustainable materials management
