EIT RawMaterials

EIT RawMaterials, initiated and funded by the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology), a body of the European Union, is the largest consortium in the raw materials sector worldwide. Its mission is to develop raw materials into a major strength for Europe by boosting competitiveness, growth and attractiveness of the European raw materials sector via radical innovation, new education approaches and guided entrepreneurship.

EIT RawMaterials unites more than 300 partners from more than 20 EU countries. EIT RawMaterials is a highly influential partner networking organisation that works to bring together like-minded partnerships between government, industry, academic, research and NGOs for the prime mission of connecting, and collaborating to find the most innovative strategies to build sustainable raw materials value chains – from mineral extraction to recycling – so that Europe can rebuild its production capacities of its raw materials and reduce its dependencies on imports, which until today, carry high risks that threaten the security of Europe.

RawMaterials Summit 2023

RawMaterials Summit is the annual flagship event of EIT RawMaterials. The event attracts more than 80 speakers and hundreds of attendees from organisations that are building a sustainable and secure raw materials sector to enable the twin green and digital transition by 2050.

The 5th edition of the RawMaterials Summit will take place on 15-17 May 2023 at The Egg, Brussels, Belgium, and will feature leading players in the international raw materials industry, innovators, educators, researchers, prominent figures from the European Commission, NGOs, and more. Key discussions on the major innovations, policy initiatives, challenges and opportunities facing the raw materials sector will take place.

The mission to build a secure supply of raw materials to enable the transition to a carbon-neutral economy, and to strengthen Europe’s strategic autonomy and global competitiveness, gains more prominence than ever on the EU’s strategic and economic agenda

RawMaterials Academy

EIT RawMaterials 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.

EIT RawMaterials Academy is the overarching brand of all the education activities of EIT RawMaterials. These range from innovative education projects launched via calls and run by the Innovation Community’s partners to a number of centrally operated projects. Activities across the entire ecosystem of learners – PhD students, Masters’ students, industrial partners, professionals within the raw materials sector, and wider society – foster new ways of learning and teaching by connecting academia, industry, and research organisations.

EIT RawMaterials Innovation Portfolio

EIT RawMaterials offers funding to project consortiums from industry, research and education to upscale solutions linked to a sustainable raw materials value chain in Europe.

The latest success stories from the EIT RawMaterials projects portfolio:

  • EIT RawMaterials funded project CSyARES (Circular System for Assessing Rare Earth Sustainability), led by Circularise, is developing a sustainability tracking tool to ensure that handling of raw materials follows environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards. This will improve the way companies track the transparency and sustainability of their supply chains.
  • Europe’s solar sector will adopt a state-of-the-art recycling process. The project ReProSolar, led by Veolia Germany, and that includes two start-ups supported by EIT RawMaterials in their early development, is working on a new process where all photovoltaic (PV) module components are completely separated for the first time. This way, pure silicon, silver and glass, among other things, can be made available to the manufacturing industry again.
  • Europe is the fifth global consumer of magnesium (Mg). However, the EU fully relies on the supply of Mg, a key alloying material for the aluminium, steel, or diecasting industry, from China. EIT RawMaterials project EU Magnesium project, led by Mures Magnesium, will bring the production of magnesium back to Europe with up to 13.5% capacity to supply the annual EU demand for minimum nine years.
