About EIT RawMaterials

Minerals, metals, and advanced materials are key enablers in achieving the objectives of the European Green Deal. Today, only a fraction of the most relevant raw materials is produced in Europe. This can be changed through a circular economy approach, through innovation in recycling, substitution, processing, mining, and exploration. It is the objective of EIT RawMaterials to secure a sustainable raw materials supply by driving innovation, education, and entrepreneurship across European industrial ecosystems.

EIT RawMaterials, initiated and funded by the EIT, a body of the European Union, is an Innovation Community which provides a collaborative environment for disruptive and breakthrough innovations by connecting business with academia, research, and investment. It also invests in future generations of innovators for the raw materials sector through initiatives ranging from the education of school students to higher qualifications for industry professionals, through the EIT RawMaterials Academy.
