the Call for Commitments of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Raw Materials has been published today and will remain open until 31 January 2014.
In order to be successful, the EIP needs to involve a very large number of partners across the European Union and the entire raw materials value chain that will carry out actions contributing to the objectives of the EIP. Actions by EU institutions alone will not be sufficient, nor will funding from the EU budget alone. This is why the European Commission is launching an open call for commitments by actors in the private, public and non-governmental sectors including academia. It is anticipated that the call will trigger a number of individual commitments (referred to as Raw Material Commitments – RMCs) where the partners jointly commit to co-operate and take actions that will contribute to achieving the objectives of the sustainable industrial policy (SIP), in the different action areas. The aim is to mobilise a substantial part of the European raw materials community thus significantly increasing the positive impacts of the EIP.
