EU Research Excellence and Capacity for Horizon 2020 Topic SC5-14-2017 Raw Materials Innovation Actions

  1. 1. EU Research Excellence and Capacity for Horizon 2020 Topic SC5-14-2017 Raw Materials Innovation Actions Overview of Topic SC5-14-2017 Raw materials Innovation Action The EU is highly dependent on raw materials that are crucial for a strong European industrial base, an essential building block of the EU's growth and competitiveness. Securing the sustainable access to raw materials, including metals, industrial minerals and construction raw materials, and particularly Critical Raw Materials (CRM), for the EU economy is of high importance. The challenge for industry is to scale-up promising raw materials production technologies and to demonstrate that raw materials can be produced in an innovative and sustainable way in order to make sure that research and innovation end-up on the market, to strengthen the competitiveness of the European raw materials industries, to meet ambitious energy and climate 2030 targets and to gain the trust of the EU citizens to raw materials sector. Methodology Stage 1: Mapping of research projects: The CORDIS database was searched using pre-selected keywords across the full suite of FP7 and Horizon 2020 programmes and relevant projects identified Stage 2: Mapping of key Institutes to receive raw materials funding: The research projects from Stage 1 were comprehensively searched to discern whether there was evidence of research institutes involved in multiple research projects. The top performing institutes involved in multiple projects were identified. Stage 3: Analysis of “networking” groups: A range of EU networking groups in the raw materials research area were analysed as part of Stage 3. Participants in networks which were also “top performing institutes” from Stage 2 were identified. Research Institutes which were involved in most FP7 and H2020 projects in subject areas relevant to Topic H2020-SC5-14-2017 FRAUNHOFER GESELLSCHAFT ZUR FORDERUNG DER ANGEWANDTEN FORSCHUNG, GERMANY#* TEKNOLOGIAN TUTKIMUSKESKUS VTT, FINLAND#* KATHOLIEKE UNIVERSITEIT LEUVEN, BELGIUM# TECHNISCHE UNIVERSITEIT DELFT, NETHERLANDS# BUREAU DE RECHERCHES GEOLOGIQUES ET MINIERES, FRANCE KGHM CUPRUM SP ZOO CENTRUM BADAWCZO-ROZWOJOWE, POLAND#* RHEINISCH-WESTFAELISCHE TECHNISCHE HOCHSCHULE AACHEN, GERMANY* # Member of European Institute of Innovation & Technology Raw Materials *Member of European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials Networks and Infrastructures in the area of SC5-14-2017 • European Institute of Innovation & Technology Raw Materials • European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials • ERA-MIN • ERA-MIN is an ERA-NET programme on the Industrial Handling of Raw Materials for European industries and is supported by the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme This study has been conducted on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency by Author: Xavier Dubuisson Eng.
