The RawMaterials Summit is the flagship event organised by the EIT RawMaterials. RawMaterials Summit 2021, the global innovation and technology conference in the raw materials sector, goes live on 17 June - this year in a new format and IN FOCUS!
The event gathers prominent speakers from the raw materials value chain, key policymakers, and European Commission representatives. With more than 700 global participants last year, the RawMaterials Summit hosted the launch of ERMA (European Raw Materials Alliance) and addressed critical challenges for the industry. Most relevant topics in the raw materials sector will be addressed such as strategies concerning supply and access to raw materials, European industrial competitiveness and innovation capacity as well as entrepreneurship and innovation in education.
