Innovating the Raw Materials value-chain – Maria Magdalena Holmgren

  1. 1. tInnovating the Raw Materials value-chain Maria Magdalena Holmgren, EPA Horizon2020 Conference, Dublin, 21th of October2015
  2. 2. 2 European Institute of Innovation & Technology in short Innovation is the key to growth, competitiveness and social well-being in the 21st century. The capacity of a society to innovate is crucial in an ever more knowledge-intensive economy. The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) aims to enhance Europe’s ability to innovate, which translates into adapting quickly to the fast pace of development, being one step ahead in providing solutions to rapidly emerging societal problems and developing products that meet the demands and desires of consumers. The EIT is a body of the European Union based in Budapest, Hungary, in 2008.

  4. 4. 4 EIT’s mission Europe faces a significant innovation challenge - Despite an excellence research base, dynamic companies and creative talent, good ideas are too rarely turned into new products or services. Europe needs a change of mind-set towards the promotion of a more innovative and entrepreneurial culture. The EIT mission is to foster entrepreneurship and innovation across Europe.
  5. 5. 5 Funding Model No research funding The EIT Funding model aims to: Boost innovation Commercialize R&D results into products, services and processes Stimulate intra- and entrepreneurship through education and life-long learning Promote mobility and cross- fertilization integrating the Knowledge Triangle
  6. 6. 6 EIT RawMaterials • Committed to strengthen technology development, innovation capacity, competiveness and sustainable growth in Europe. • Aims to boost innovation by introducing new solutions, products and services for sustainable exploration, extraction, mineral processing, recycling, material management and substitution. • Expected to turn investment into tangible economic and social impact, including business opportunities, risk taking and entrepreneurial people contributing to sustainable economic growth. This, in turn, will boost the competitiveness of the European Raw aterials sector and generate new, high quality jobs. • Focuses on commercialization of new products and services on a global market, business creation and SME growth.
  7. 7. 7 Challenges are opportunities
  8. 8. 8 EIT RawMaterials 8 Securing raw materials supply Designing solutions Closing material loops Mission Goals To boost the competitiveness, growth, and attractiveness of the European Raw Materials sector through radical innovation and entrepreneurship. • To create and develop “game changing” businesses • To boost the existing Raw Materials sector through the market introduction of new materials, investment in new production and processing units, system integration and the setting up of new partnerships • To achieve a “paradigm shift” in raw materials education by introducing entrepreneurship, supporting the effective transformation of ideas into businesses
  9. 9. 9 Focus Markets EIT RawMaterials gives specific attention to four focus markets with a dual aim to: • Secure the needs of Raw Material and to provide commercial products and services to these material intensive markets. • Introduce solutions from the focus markets to the Raw Materials sector.
  10. 10. 10 EIT RawMaterials Knowledge and Innovation Themes Aim to integrate the Knowledge Triangle and to facilitate a systemic approach to the Raw Materials value-chain. Exploration and raw materials resource assessment Mining in challenging environments Increased resource efficiency in mineral and metallurgical processes Recycling and materials chain optimisation for End-of-Life products Substitution of critical and toxic materials in products and for optimised performance Design of products and services for the circular economy
  11. 11. 11 EIT RawMaterials - A pan-European Network of Excellence Six Co-Location Centres (CLCs): • Baltic Sea CLC in Espoo, Finland • Central CLC in Metz, France • Eastern CLC in Wroclaw, Poland • Northern CLC in Luleå, Sweden • Southern CLC in Rome, Italy • Western CLC in Leuven, Belgium Categories of KIC Partnership: • Core partners • Associate partners • Task partners • Support partners
