Dear EIT RawMaterials friends,

We are glad to inform you that Accelerator Program Phase 1 with start in September is now open with deadline for submission 30 th of July 2018.

This is a call to Start-Ups who consider they already have an innovative offering (at TRL4-6) – and who see the opportunity in rapidly developing this offering to the exploration, mining, mineral processing, metal & mineral & steel making and recycling industries as well as their suppliers of equipment and tools. The call is to apply to phase 1 of the Accelerator Programme of EIT RawMaterials.

EIT RawMaterials is a partner network of 120 companies and organisations who are working together to accelerate the pace of innovation in the above raw materials sectors as well as enhance competence development.  The EIT RawMaterials partner-network is also keen to adopt relevant innovations from Start-ups and SMEs.  SMEs and Start-Ups are supported by the EIT RawMaterials partner network in a number of ways. In this particular call, Start-ups are encouraged to apply for phase 1 of the Accelerator Programme, which aims to support you rapidly develop your business and customer understanding so that it becomes ready for business in the above raw materials industries.


The EIT RawMaterials Accelerator Programme is novel because it can make introduction to customers in the EIT RawMaterials partner-network who are willing to adopt innovations; and, it connects local and national eco systems to the Pan-European network of pilot & test infrastructure facilities as well as potential customers. We also supply grant funding to enable your team to participate in the Accelerator Programme.

The EIT RawMaterials Accelerator Programme aims to develop Start-ups so that they can rapidly become suppliers to, and perhaps future partners of, the EIT RawMaterials network.

Looking forward to Your team’s application!
