The ambitious vision of EIT RawMaterials will be realised by the creation of a structured collaboration within the Knowledge Triangle, which is the basis of the KIC model. A structured dialogue between academia, research institutes and business will facilitate an exchange of needs, ideas, research results and best practices. New entre- and intrapreneurs, with innovative ideas, will be supported to turn their ideas into business opportunities through our innovation system. This approach will leverage impact through synergies and will provide a powerful way of maximising opportunities in the raw materials sector and securing raw materials supply for Europe. Operationally the projects are managed through the Co-Location Centres, which also support the partners in their strive for new, innovative projects.

Objective The production and marketing of an innovative, low-cost and user-friendly, automated system for the microscopic characterization of ores, to improve the geometallurgical performance and to reduce the environmental impact bound to the benefit of mineral raw materials. The solution (technology) The AMCO system will upgrade previous developments (CAMEVA System, TRL: 5+) based on reflected […]Read more ›
Objective The ArcHub project aims at establishing a network of excellence for sustainable mineral exploration and extraction in the Arctic. Such a Network would act as an Arctic Gateway and Forum to further strengthen synergy between research, education, governmental organizations and industry in the Arctic region/Europe promoting environmentally and socially sustainable extraction of resources. The […]Read more ›
Objective The main objective of the project is to produce a number of scarce raw materials for the European economy from wastes from the alumina refining industry. The solution (technology) The project will pilot the capture of high purity gallium and vanadium from upstream spent Bayer liquors whilst improving alumina yield within the Bayer process.

BioFlex is a network of infrastructure (NoI) bringing together biometallurgy related infrastructure. Objective BioFlex aims to bring together partners with infrastructure and expertise in biometallurgy. Biometallurgy includes bioleaching of metals from ores and waste, biosorption of metals from liquid streams, bioprecipitation of metals and bio-electrochemistry of metals. BioFlex operates within the ZeroWaste cluster of Networks […]Read more ›
CaproKIC: Upscaling of one step process for automotive continuous fiber Polyamide 6 composite parts based on the in situ polymerization of e-caprolactam
Objective Continuous fiber reinforced plastic can achieve weight reductions of 60% compare with steel but its introduction in the automotive sector remains limited to niche luxury and premium concepts (small series) due mainly to the cycle times, the production costs and the price of raw materials. The project intent to address this problem scaling […]Read more ›
