Oktober 2018 – Das EIT RawMaterials besucht die Vojvodina Region in Serbien

Im Zuge der ESEE (East & South East Europe) Strategie des Regional Center (RC) Leoben besuchte Anna Meyer die EIT Cross KIC RIS Dialog Konferenz in Novi Sad. Das Event bot die Möglichkeit sich über alle KICs (Knowledge und Innovation Communities des EIT RawMaterials) zu informieren. Durch die Zusammenarbeit von EIT RawMaterials, EIT Health, EIT Climate KIC, EIT Digital, EIT InnoEnergy und EIT Food entstand ein wertvolles Event durch das sich die Türen des EIT nach Serbien eröffneten.

EIT Cross KIC RIS Dialog Konferenz in Novi Sad kann als direktes Resultat der vom RC Leoben organisierten siebenten ESEE Dialog Konferenz am 16.11.2017 in Belgrad verstanden werden. Bei der Konferenz in Belgrad wurden wichtige Verbindungen zwischen dem Regionalsekretariat für Wirtschaft und Tourismus der Vojvodina Region und dem EIT RawMaterials hergestellt. Diese Verbindungen führten schließlich zu der EIT Cross KIC RIS Dialog Konferenz in Novi Sad. Somit kann es als erfolgreiche Umsetzung der ESEE Strategie des RC Leoben verbucht werden, dass sich die Reichweite des EIT RawMaterials sowie des EIT nach Serbien erweitert.

Folgende Lehrstühle und Kompetenzzentren präsentierten sich und ihre Forschungsaktivitäten:

  • Raul Bermejo, Chair of Structural and Functional Ceramics
  • Michael Tkadletz, Chair of Functional Materials and Materials
  • Ewald Fauster, Department Polymer Engineering and Science, Chair of Processing of Composites
  • Susanne Feiel, Anna Meyer, International Office and Resources Innovation Center (RIC)
  • Megan Cordill, Erich Schmid Institute of Materials Science Leoben
  • Günter Maier, Materials Center Leoben (MCL)
  • Elisabeth Ladstätter, Polymer Competence Center Leoben (PCCL)

Beiderseitiges Interesse und einige Möglichkeiten zur Kooperation besiegelten einen gelungenen Austausch.

September 2018 – This was the Eumicon International Conference

Within the framework of the conference, Montanuniversitaet RIC Leoben organized half a day focusing on “Raw Materials” made in Europe for Europe. These comprised the global consumption of resources of all categories with a future outlook on this development, the extractive industries and their societal acceptance, Europe’s mineral potential, influences of non-European markets on EU raw material’s production, knowledge management on European raw materials supply chains, the renewability of metal resources as well as policy instruments and their influence on innovation in the raw materials sector.

The European raw materials initiative, EUMICON, in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Sustainability and Tourism of the Republic of Austria organized the EUMICON 2018 Conference in Vienna from September 26th to 28th, within the scope of the Austrian EU Council Presidency. An international stakeholder group concerned with sustainable Raw Materials supply for society came together and discussed highly relevant topics revolving around the technological revolution which will bring about a whole new range of products and innovative services in the coming decades: Automated cars, SMART technology, Internet of Things. Knowledge exchange revolved around how such developments will have a significant impact on the added value of the extractive industry and its downstream branches as well as the political conditions which will act as a significant driver – or indeed a brakeman. Access to raw materials, circular economy or robust and fair trade with other regions of the world – all of these factors that will shape the future of the European extractive industry and its value added, were up for discussion in this international expert platform.

July 2018 – CirCOOL Summer School at Montanuniversitaet Leoben

RIC Leoben supports the first CirCOOL Summer School at Montanuniversität Leoben

CirCOOL, the new innovative international Summer School at Montanuniversitaet Leoben took place from 8th-18th July 2018. The team from RIC Leoben provided interesting input on two half days. Setting the scene for the coming days of circular economy learning the international students were given presentations on RIC Leoben’s core activities. Naturally, the focus was on EIT Raw Materials, EIT Climate KIC and the Sustainable Development Goals. Students were provided with interesting information and opportunities for their further studies and career. For example:

  • EIT RawMaterials Start-up Boot Camps and Booster Call
  • Educational project overviews for Raw Materials @ School, ECLC Professional School, Admired Lab and Dubrovnik International Mining School
  • EIT Climate KIC Start-up activities such as Climate Launchpad, Greenhouse, Start-up Accelerator

All presentations embraced the circular economy as core element and showed the CirCOOL student group different points of view that EIT Raw Materials, EIT Climate KIC and the Sustainable Development Goals can add to the circular economy. EIT RM moved resources and their availability into the focus while EIT Climate KIC highlights disruptive change in activities linked to massive greenhouse gas emissions. Lastly, many circular economy practices foster the implantation of the SDGs as well as working on the SDGs improves the move to a more circular economy. The contribution of RIC Leoben was rounded off by an interactive group work on the last day of CirCOOL.
