Make your pitch for the Water Resource Innovation Challenge

The Water Resource Innovation Challenge 2023 is offering €50k to the startup or SME with the best solution for protecting the world’s most important resource.

Mining group, Eramet, and EIT RawMaterials are running the challenge which will invest in an innovation that can ‘preserve water quality or reduce water consumption and/or maximise recycling in mining or hydrometallurgy’.

Bernd Schäfer, CEO, Managing Director, EIT RawMaterials, said: “Promoting sustainability in the mining and metals industry and fostering innovation are fundamental elements of EIT RawMaterials’ mission, so I am thrilled to announce our support for Eramet’s Water Resource Innovation Challenge 2023. Initiatives like this have a key role to play in providing sustainable access to strategic raw materials, and Europe’s transition to a green and digital economy.”

Start-ups and SMEs must apply by 13 September.
