EIT RawMaterials: Call for Applications for RawMatCop 2018-2020 Programme

EIT RawMaterials RawMatCop

EIT RawMaterials has launched a call for Post-Doctoral Research Scholarship Projects 

In December 2017, as a result of the call  "Copernicus Building Skills Actions" from the European Commission/DG GROW, EIT RawMaterials was awarded a three-year action, the RawMatCop programme 2018-2020. The RawMatCop 2018-2020 programme will build on the results and experiences from the one-year RawMatCop 2017 programme, also awarded by DG GROW and carried out by EIT RawMaterials and post-doctoral researchers hosted by EIT RawMaterials partners over 12 months in 2017-2018.

The aim of the RawMatCop 2018-2020 programme is to develop skills, expertise, demonstrations and applications at the intersection between Earth observation data, specifically Copernicus data, and the raw materials sector. Moreover, the RawMatCop 2018-2020 programme will share its results and encourage knowledge transfer and skills dissemination both with the partners of EIT RawMaterials but also with other sectors and Innovation Communities.

The 2018-2020 programme will cover four key activities:

  • RawMatCop Post-Doctoral Research Projects
  • RawMatCop Academic Placement Projects with Industry/Authorities
  • RawMatCop Lifelong Learning programme
  • RawMatCop Dissemination Event

As a result, the EIT RawMaterials would like to announce the RawMatCop 2018-2020 Call for Applications for:

  • two Post-Doctoral Research Scholarship Projects, duration 1 year
  • two Academic Placement Projects with Industry/Authorities, duration up to 1 year (minimum 6 months)

Applications should be submitted to EIT RawMaterials via email to
