Strengthening the raw materials sector by educating the lifecycle of innovators

Our modern lifestyle relies on raw materials. From the iron and steel of our railway infrastructure to the gold and silver in the circuitry of smartphones: raw materials are everywhere. The transition to a climate-neutral future requires cobalt for electric vehicles, lithium for rechargeable batteries, silicon for solar panels, and rare earth elements for wind turbines that generate renewable energy.

As the world grows smaller and more hyper-connected, the impact of society on the Earth has never been more visible. We need to shift to a circular economy to use the Earth’s finite resources responsibly. But what can just one individual do to help? More than you think! Real change requires courage, innovative thinking, and collective action - the same skill set that EIT RawMaterials Academy looks for in prospective students.

The RawMaterials Academy is the overarching brand of all the education activities of EIT RawMaterials. These range from innovative education projects launched via calls and run by the Innovation Community’s partners to a number of centrally operated projects. Activities across the entire ecosystem of learners - Master’s and PhD students, industrial partners, professionals within the raw materials sector, and wider society - foster new ways of learning and teaching by connecting academia, industry and research organisations.

The RawMaterials Academy aims to:

  • Introduce society as a whole to the importance and relevance of raw materials and incite interest in topics related to raw materials
  • Equip talent with technical knowledge, including ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) standards, required by the raw materials industry today
  • Foster entrepreneurial and innovation skills, knowledge and attitudes needed for the entre- and intrapreneurs of tomorrow
