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 idea in the Factory is to create a virtual working space, where individuals and organizations can test and share their ideas on how to advance material efficiency and circular economy by creating different types of computational models and solutions and to validate them against real provided scientific, industrial and environmental data. The solution […]Read more ›
Objective While the territory of the EU in many parts shows a very high exploration potential, it is still a fact that a mere 4% of global expenditure in exploration is invested within European countries. One tool to trigger a higher degree of investment in exploration and to secure ultimately the domestic supply of both […]Read more ›
Objective The project will upscale an innovative technology for metallurgical treatment of up to 100% Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) concentrate. The solution (technology) The key technology is a novel smelting furnace in combination with an optimised separation and refining process which allows the treatment of up to 100% low-grade WEEE-concentrate, offering the possibility […]Read more ›
Objective The main objective of the project is to take the existing X-ray and sorting technology at least to TRL 7 (system prototype demonstration in operational environment) and to introduce X-ray technology to the RM sector. A prototype will be built and tested with real material first in The solution (technology) A prototype will be […]Read more ›
