The annual Call for Innovation & Education Projects is an opportunity for innovators to maximise the recognition of their disruptive ideas among leading players within Europe’s raw materials sector. EIT RawMaterials is seeking solutions from potential candidates to contribute to shaping a strong, sustainable raw materials sector in Europe.
The European Green Deal has put a tremendous spotlight on the raw materials sector to deliver deep tech innovation and education at an unprecedented pace and scale. It will cause an industrial shift that puts the environmental and social responsibility for our human capital and efficient governance at the centre of every business model. This transformation will lead to scales of innovation not seen before and turn the industry into a powerhouse of innovation and change.
EIT RawMaterials is the only raw materials leader in the world to offer a collaboration platform for industry, research and education. The Call for Innovation & Education Projects is a funding opportunity to empower the raw materials sector to leave behind traditional approaches and develop new, disruptive solutions crucial to establishing the highest industry standards and strengthening our global leadership.
Only by working together can we achieve outstanding results and make great strides in building a world-leading raw materials industry for Europe. Please visit our website to learn about the Call for Innovation & Education Projects with EIT RawMaterials.
Who can apply
All organisations that are eligible for funding under the Horizon Europe programme can apply.
You do not have to be an existing partner organisation of EIT RawMaterials to apply for funding, but by becoming one, you will gain access to a valuable source of expertise and potential collaborators. They will work with you and help build your consortium if, or when, you decide to apply for funding.
We also encourage our partners and stakeholders from industry, research, and education, including start-ups and SMEs, to submit new project proposals. These projects should demonstrate how they will impact significantly on European industrial competitiveness, innovation capacity, and human capital, as well as empower students and entrepreneurs advancing the circular economy and the green and digital transition goals of the European Green Deal.
