What we do

We promote networking, exchange of project ideas and offer support to potential new partners in the EIT RawMaterials Community.

Matchmaking and networking activities

The main objective of RC Adria is to increase the visibility of the EIT RawMaterials in the ESEE region and to promote networking, exchange of project ideas and support for inclusion of potential new partners into the EIT RawMaterials community.

The activities in the field of matchmaking and networking are focused on the organization of Industrial symbiosis workshop and RC Adria core matchmaking and networking event, Adria Innovation Day, targeting wide range of stakeholders from the raw materials sector to initiate matchmaking and knowledge triangle integration. Both events lead to the development of cross-sectoral matchmaking, sustainable solutions for resource management, innovative project ideas and the generation of business opportunities attracted by the ongoing support programs of EIT RawMaterials.

Learning and education activities

Learning and education activities are a crucial part of the knowledge triangle. Education programmes aim to create professionals with an understanding of the entire raw materials value chain and an attitude towards innovation and entrepreneurship with a focus on sustainability.

Internship program for ESEE Raw materials students

The main aim of ADRIA Internship Programme is to give the students enrolled in the Master's programme (in the fields of mining, geosciences, metallurgy, waste management and similar fields) the opportunity to work as interns in various companies and institutions, but also to train a certain number of future trainers in the companies/institutions mentioned. The programme is designed as a booster to new concepts of higher education and early employment strategies and focuses on the ADRIA region, i.e. Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia Serbia and Slovenia. Calls for applications are published annually and are open until the total allocated funds are exhausted.

Cooperation of RC Adria and JA Slovenija in the "Skills for Future" program

EIT RawMaterials ("Skills for Future" program), with the support of our RC Adria team, started cooperation with Junior Achievement Europe and its Slovenian branch JA Slovenija - Zavod za spodbujanje podjetnosti mladih at the beginning of the 2019/2020 school year. Throughout the school year, students from 19 Slovenian high schools learned a lot about solving entrepreneurial challenges while running their own student companies. The students were encouraged to create circular economy oriented products and solutions, especially in the field of minerals and metals.
