“Being a host was very simple since the RACE team prepared and executed their part very well. A day filled with interesting and dynamic discussions from very engaged team of students and organizers.”

“LKAB was very pleased with the contact and communication with the team behind RACE. The event was planned through good dialogue and cooperation, and the students who visited were interested and engaged. An event that added value for LKAB and hopefully also for the students.”

“VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd was pleased with the opportunity to host a group of future experts in raw materials, sustainability, and circularity. We had an active day with the group, and it was inspiring to discuss and collaborate with the motivated young talents.”

"It was awesome to attend and participate in RACE 2022. It was a privilege to meet some of the future explorationist and entrepreneurs of the world. We were honored to also introduce BHP Xplor, our accelerator program looking at early stage start-ups with ideas to find critical commodities such as nickel and copper. Thank you to the team at EIT RawMaterials for hosting us and organising the successful event."
