EIT RawMaterials Academy
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 – PhD students, Masters’ 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 aims of the RawMaterials Academy are:
- To introduce society as a whole to the importance and relevance of raw materials and incite interest in topics related to raw materials
- To train current and future stakeholders to the technical standards required by the raw materials industry today – contextually across the entire raw materials value chain
- To foster the entrepreneurial and innovation skills, knowledge and attitudes needed for the entre- and intrapreneurs of tomorrow.
