EIT RawMaterials and Eramet launch the Responsible Mining Innovation Challenge 2021
Following the successful edition of last year, Eramet and EIT RawMaterials are launching the 2021 edition of the Open Innovation Challenge on a theme which is crucial for the future of our activities: Responsible Mining.
Applicable to a wide area ranging from environmentally friendly exploration, water management, safety and monitoring at mining sites, mine rehabilitation and biodiversity to traceability of raw materials, this challenge illustrates the ambition of Eramet to make innovation a major contributor to responsible mining.
Start-ups and SMEs are invited to apply to the Eramet Responsible Mining Challenge 2021 from June 15 to September 15, 2021. The winning team will be awarded a collaboration contract with Eramet (up to EUR 50 000), with potential extension to a long-term collaboration. T en successful applicants will be invited to pitch their solution to a jury at an Open Innovation event on 9 November 2021. After this presentation, only three candidates will have the opportunity to be coached by Eramet and EIT RawMaterials experts to better match their solution to Eramet’s specific issues. The winner will be chosen in early 2022.
