We are reaching out to you because EIT RawMaterials is organizing an awareness-raising and training event for PhD students and their supervisors on the EIT Jumpstarter program, why the program is beneficial to both groups and how to successfully apply. We believe that most of the research results of a PhD study have greater potential beyond their scientific value and the raw materials sector is looking or these results to solve the most pressing issues that define every day of the sector and through the access to raw materials, the life of European citizens.
Both events will be online to ensure easy access while providing exciting, practical and inspirational information. The first event will be held on the 27th of October 2022 and the second event will be held on the 28nd of November, 2022.

As a graduate of the programme, you will have the skills and knowledge to launch your company, and as part of the alumni community, you will receive further support and dedicated advice from the EIT Communities regarding the next stage of your start-up journey. We introduce graduates to partners, VCs, regulatory bodies and companies that can produce your products, and introduce you to your first buyer or a test site. You will get to experience major innovation hubs in Europe, which is important when you want to enter foreign markets.
