EIT RawMaterials is at the forefront of driving innovation and sustainability in the raw materials sector. As an Innovation Community within the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), we collaborate with over 300 partners across industry, academia, and research institutes. Together, we forge dynamic, long-term partnerships to develop innovative solutions that meet Europe’s growing demand for raw materials.

Joining one of the largest and strongest consortia in the raw materials sector worldwide, your focus will be on the dynamic Baltic Sea & North European region.

Your role will be pivotal in advancing our mission by:

  • Promotion and Event Management: Promote and sell key products and services, actively contributing to the development and monitoring of matchmaking and networking events. Engage with partners and stakeholders to foster collaboration and knowledge-sharing.
  • Liaison and Networking: Connect with national and regional innovation programs, local partners, and government bodies to explore opportunities for collaboration and funding. Contribute to the financial sustainability of EIT RawMaterials through strategic partnerships and initiatives.

Your work will be instrumental in accelerating Europe’s transition towards a sustainable, resilient, and resource-efficient future.

  • Experience in product and/or business development within raw or advanced materials or related topics (e.g., market analysis, incubation, business model design, funding, mentoring, patenting), and a sound network of personal contacts in our region.
