EIT RawMaterials HUB-Regional Center Greece as the “interaction point” between EIT RawMaterials Community and the regional raw materials ecosystem in Greece and neighboring countries, is proud to share the news about a new innovation challenge on in-situ and real-time monitoring for start-ups and SMEs. As widely known, one of the main challenges of the European raw materials industry is the increasing demand for raw materials combined with high import dependency. For a sustainable supply of mineral resources, Europe needs to strengthen its processing capabilities and create smart and environmental-friendly solutions to remain competitive
In this context EIT RawMaterials and Eramet have joint forces and present the Eramet Real-time Monitoring Challenge 2020 to find new innovative solutions for in-situ and real-time monitoring. The search field extends to a wide range of smart measurement / recording techniques (in situ sensors, Real time sensors, Test automation, 3D Imaging etc) targeting data collection and processing. The ultimate goal is the presentation of a holistic solution that will allow monitoring and parameterization of a standard flow chart, resulting in quality control of intermediate and final products.
The challenge, launched on 15 July 2020, will award the winning candidacy with 50K and offer start-ups and SMEs the opportunity to collaborate with global industrial leaders and to validate their solution.
