RESOURCES INNOVATION CENTER LEOBEN

Fostering Innovation Communities in the Raw Materials Field

 

The Resources Innovation Center Leoben at Montanuniversitaet Leoben is home to the international partnerships of the university in the areas of sustainable science, education and industrialization. The first partnership was the EIT RawMaterials, a pan European 125-partner network for raw materials, a so-called Knowledge & Innovation Community (KIC) of the European Institute for Innovation and Technology. A KIC consists of a consortium of industry, science and education stakeholders, which try to contribute to the solution of societal challenges through innovation projects. In particular, RIC Leoben works on projects in the areas of education, sustainable exploration & mining, technological innovation and recycling and is an active partner in terms of the strategic development of the community. Our next step was to join the EIT Climate-KIC, which is also a Knowledge & Innovation Community. Here, the areas of Urban Transition and Sustainable Production Systems to foster a climate resilient society are our main focus. Another pillar at RIC Leoben is sustainable development, in which we are committed to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals through various initiatives. One of the key activities in this respect is the implementation of the goals in the Austrian Higher Education sector through a joint network project of all universities. What all our partnerships have in common: they are thematically connected and synergetic aiming at sustainable innovation in the resources sector for a better future.

AT A GLANCE

Raw Materials University Days

The RawMaterials University Days is a communication campaign which was launched by the European Commission in the framework of the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials. The aim of the Montanuniversitaet RawMaterials University Day was to attract young people that are finishing school and deciding on their path of future study, in order to inform them about the various study and career opportunities in the raw materials sector. Over 200 students and their teachers from schools all over Austria attended. They were invited to spend the day visiting the Erzberg mine and facilities of the Montanuniversitaet Leoben. The event was funded by the EIT RawMaterials KIC.
