The Journey is a EIT Climate KIC summer school programme for Master/PhD students and young professionals and is held in through July, August and September. It focuses on climate action, innovation, systems transformation, and community building. Due to current circumstances, the Journey will go online! We are preparing an extraordinary experience for the participants, unique for its complexity and multiple level of climate actions conserved even in a digital format! We are excited to see the results of this innovative format and we are equally looking forward to the challenge of a digital Journey. Leoben will “host” the first two weeks for 40 of the 400 young professionals that are participating in the Journey all over the world.
Bringing stakeholders together to shape future research and innovation policy
European Research and Innovation Days is the European Commission’s annual flagship event, bringing together policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and citizens to debate and shape the future of research and innovation in Europe and beyond.
The 2020 edition will gather broad input from participants on how research and innovation policy and funding can deliver on the European Green Deal, digitalisation and other priorities. Building on the success of last year’s edition, the 2020 event will feature three days of intensive policy co-designing, thought-provoking panels and matchmaking opportunities.
In a crucial year, just ahead of the launch of Horizon Europe, the next Research & Innovation programme starting in 2021, and an enhanced European Research Area, this event is a unique chance to discuss how research and innovation will benefit the future of Europe.
Bringing science to you
Want to see some science in action? Bring your friends, family, classmates and teachers and join us at Science is Wonderful! – a free exhibition that brings the world of science to the public – showcasing groundbreaking science through hands-on experiments, live demonstrations and chats with European and international researchers.
The event will take place at Brussels Expo on 22-24 September 2020.
The Global Innovation and Technology Conference in the Raw Materials Sector
Metals, minerals and advanced materials are vital for the EU economy and are the key enablers for the clean energy transition and future mobility. The sustainable management of natural resources and the shift to a green economy are essential in achieving a resource-efficient and competitive economy in Europe.
The RM SUMMIT 2020 will envision the future of the raw materials industry in line with the priorities of the EU Green Deal. The three-day event will address digitalisation and innovation in areas including the transition to green energy supply as well as the rising demand for raw materials and advanced materials for e-mobility.
Meet prominent speakers and the world’s largest innovation community in the raw materials sector at the RM SUMMIT 2020! Global stakeholders will connect with the top European experts developing and deploying the latest technology, products and services for the sustainable competitiveness of the raw materials sector in Europe.
Connecting science, technology and innovation in the raw materials sector for the green energy transition
The RM SUMMIT 2020 will showcase three tracks: Innovation, the Raw Materials Venture Forum and Education, with several thematic sessions covering critical challenges of the sector. Technical parallel sessions will focus on how innovation and technology will deliver transformational change for the raw materials sector, benefitting the economy, society and environment.
The topics include:
- RAW MATERIALS, CLEAN ENERGY TRANSITION AND CLIMATE NEUTRALITY
- TRANSITION TO CIRCULAR SOCIETIES
- SUSTAINABILITY STANDARDS FOR THE RAW MATERIALS SECTOR
- DIGITALISATION AND DATA-DRIVEN INNOVATION
- DISRUPTIVE MATERIALS INNOVATIONS
- EU CITIZEN ENGAGEMENT FOR THE NEW GENERATION OF CONSUMERS
- FUTURE OF EDUCATION
Topic: Brain Drain and its effects to the ESEE region
Given the uncertainties connected the recent COVID-19 pandemic we have decided to organize an online ESEE Dialogue Conference. With eleven successful conferences in East and South East Europe we feel called to go new ways. Therefore, we see this challenge as an opportunity to grow as well as to broaden our impact and to expand the EIT RawMaterials network digitally.

Montanuniversität Leoben, Austria
The Austrian Climate Day is a scientific conference that aims to provide an overview of current Austrian research activities in the fields of climate change, impacts, adaptation and prevention. In addition, the Climate Day has developed into a central showcase of research activities financed by climate and energy funds. Furthermore, the Climate Day serves to network natural science, socio-economic, humanities and cultural science departments and promotes the exchange between basic research, applied research and users. A special focus is therefore placed on cooperation and dialogue with stakeholders from politics and administration as well as networking with practitioners, research funding agencies and businesses. Through the Climate Change Centre Austria (CCCA), forces are bundled; scientific findings on climate change can be efficiently transported to society and contribute to solving the challenge of climate change.
