Call for Projects 2021 - Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RawMaterials)

Aalto EIT Services - Javor

Official call page - https://eitrawmaterials.eu/call-for-projects/

  • Proposal registration and submission platform ‘Seedbook‘ goes online: early November 2019
  • Proposal registration deadline: Friday, 17 January 2020 at 13:00 CET
  • Proposal submission deadline: Friday, 28 February 2020 at 13:00 CET

The aim of EIT RawMaterials is to take the optimal pathways to reinforce and expand activities in regions of strategic importance, taking into account synergies with the various raw materials actions that the EU Commission has planned to implement with non-EU partners from 2015 onwards.

The strategy for delivering maximum impact in the RIS regions is:

  1. Engage strong key partners from RIS regions or those having focus on and commitment to RIS regions to enable outreach to the local stakeholders. Engage the local stakeholders so that they benefit from being involved in KIC activities.
  2. Transfer the Knowledge Triangle Integration concept into RIS regions to contribute to increasing the innovation level and skills and capacity building.
  3. Carry out core KIC activities in innovation/upscaling and education with partners and external stakeholders in RIS regions.
  4. Grow KIC participation from non-partners (and potential partners) from RIS regions by securing a strong presence in the RIS countries (Hubs) and by targeted matchmaking & networking events.

EIT RawMaterials identified the following three priority outreach regions:

  • The East & South-East Europe (ESEE) region is of particular interest due to its unique raw materials potential, especially for critical minerals (both geological resources and secondary raw materials) and its specific geopolitical situation. The ESEE region is also included in specific transnational programmes as part of the EU Cohesion Policy
  • Baltic countries as fast developing regions
  • The southern Mediterranean region

General rules:

  • All RIS Acceleration projects follow the same rules that apply to Upscaling projects, including the provision of a strategy for the financial sustainability of the KIC and minimum 30% co-funding.
  • All RIS RM Academy projects follow the same rules that apply to Education projects.
  • All types of RIS proposals may include RIS Task Partners.
  • RIS projects are requested to reach a non-EIT/EIT funding ratio of 50:50 (80:20 for RIS Acceleration projects).
