As PHENO HORIZON, we have joined EIT RawMaterials – the largest raw materials consortium in the world. It was initiated and is funded by the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology), a body of the European Union.

EIT RawMaterials pursues the vision of building the sustainable competitiveness of the European minerals, metals and materials sector along the value chain by stimulating innovation, education and entrepreneurship.

EIT RawMaterials brings together more than 120 core and associate partners and over 180 project partners from leading industries, universities and research institutions from more than 20 EU countries. EIT RawMaterials partners are active along the entire raw materials value chain: from exploration, extraction and mineral processing to substitution, recycling and the circular economy. They work together to find new and innovative solutions to secure supply and improve the raw materials sector in Europe.

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

EIT RawMaterials will have a significant impact on European competitiveness and employment by stimulating and supporting innovation and empowering students, entrepreneurs and education partners moving towards a circular economy. This will lead to the introduction of innovative and sustainable products, processes and services, as well as talented people to make European society more economically, environmentally and socially sustainable.
