About EIT RawMaterials
Funded by the European Commission, we are the largest and strongest consortium in the raw materials sector worldwide. Our aims are to develop raw materials into a major strength for Europe – via radical innovation, new education approaches, and guided entrepreneurship.
That is why they are working with entrepreneurs, innovators, industry, and universities in six critical thematic fields:
Design smarter solutions, closing materials loops
Substitution of critical and toxic materials for key technologies
Turning waste into valuable resources
Improve resource efficiency and safety
Innovative technologies for intelligent and sustainable mining
Innovative and efficient technologies, securing raw materials supply in Europe

Nobody can make it alone in the circular economy - How can indicators solve the challenges of the circular economy?The efficient use and exchange of information are considered fundamental aspects for the prosperity of ecosystems, being them natural or industrial. Consequently, data sharing becomes a requisite for successful circular economy models since, by definition, they require the collaborative interaction of various actors throughout the value chain of materials and products. However, there are significant data gaps that currently prevent the implementation of circular economy in practice.
