THE EUROPEAN INNOVATION PARTNERSHIP ON RAW MATERIALS (EIP RAW MATERIALS)

The scope of the EIP RAW MATERIALS covers non-energy, non-agricultural raw materials used for industrial purpose, including minerals and aggregates, wood and natural rubber-based materials. This EIP was set up with a view to increasing and securing the sustainable supply of Europe’s own raw materials and make Europe a world leader in raw materials exploration, extraction processing, recycling and substitution by 2020.

As other EIPs, the EIP RAW MATERIALS is not a funding instrument. It aims to bring stakeholders together to join efforts, exchange and/or create innovation ideas, and partner in projects which produce concrete deliverables.

The EIP's Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP), approved in September 2013, sets out the EIP’s specific objectives and targets as well as the necessary actions to achieve them. FTP together with CEPI and CEI-Bois were actively involved in the preparation process of the EIP RAW MATERIAL’s SIP.

Further to approval of the SIP, the EIP launched an open Call for Commitments. A Commitment is a joint undertaking by different parties to cooperate and take actions that will contribute to achieving the objectives of the SIP. FTP is involved in three Commitments: ETP PRIME, ECAMOB, and GENTLE.

Governance

The High Level Steering Group (HLSG) provides strategic direction for the EIP RAW MATERIALS. It updates the SIP and promotes the activities of the EIP at EU and national level.

The Sherpa Group acts as the link between the HLSG and the Operational Groups. It follows up the decisions of the HLSG and ensures the smooth running of the EIP, including the planning of major actions and events. The Sherpa Group is composed of representatives of the European industry, academia, and Member State civil services.

Operational Groups (OGs)’s main task is to provide expert advice to the Sherpa Group and HLSG to convert the SIP into tasks and actions. Five different OGs have been established, according to the different subjects covered by the Work Packages. OG members are drawn from European industry, academia, and Member State civil services.
