Facilitator Application 2020


It has been the question on our minds for quite some time now, in light of the Covid-19, can we go ahead with our planned RACE 2020?  The RACE Project Management Team has been closely monitoring the situation over the last few weeks and we have concluded that, with great sadness, the planned physical RACE 2020 unfortunately could not go ahead this year. The decision was not easy to make but in light of the current circumstances, we feel like it is the safest thing to do, as public health must come first. We at EIT RawMaterials Academy, strongly believe that RACE is a great opportunity for connecting students and industry, boosting entrepreneurial and innovation skills, providing the platform for master students to curate and create sustainable “Raw Materials for Future Mobility” solutions to industrial and societal challenges 

To ensure the continuity of the successful RACE 2019 and enable the platform of innovative ideas exchange, we hereby confirm the following two things: 

  1. The RACE will be organized in 2021! Fill in the form below to register your interest in RACE 2021, in order to be informed personally by the RawMaterials Academy when the Call for RACE 2021 Applications is launched next spring 2021
