Developing raw materials into a major strength for Europe

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 vision is to develop raw materials into a major strength for Europe. Its mission is to enable sustainable competitiveness in the European minerals, metals, and materials sector along the value chain by driving innovation, education, and entrepreneurship.

EIT RawMaterials unites more than 120 core and associate partners and 180+ project partners from leading industries, universities, and research institutions from more than 20 EU countries. Partners of EIT RawMaterials are active across the entire raw materials value chain; from exploration, mining, and mineral processing to substitution, recycling, and circular economy. They collaborate on finding new, innovative solutions to secure supplies and improve the raw materials sector in Europe.

There are six regional Innovation Hubs in Belgium, Finland, France, Italy, Poland, and Sweden, called Co-Location Centres (CLCs) that represent different regional ecosystems connecting industry, research, and education.

EIT RawMaterials aims to significantly enhance innovation in the raw materials sector by sharing knowledge, facilitating matchmaking activities, developing innovative technologies, and supporting business creation.

EIT RawMaterials will generate a significant impact on European competitiveness and employment by driving and fostering innovation and empowering students, entrepreneurs, and education partners driving toward the circular economy. This will result in the introduction of innovative and sustainable products, processes, and services, as well as talented people that will deliver increased economic, environmental, and social sustainability to European society.
