Project description
The RAMI Circular Raw Materials Research Infrastructure (RI) is hosted by Aalto, GTK and VTT. It is designed to strengthen the long-term core expertise and education to place Finland among the world leaders in natural and new inorganic material research needed for the Circular Economy. This RI is especially important for activities related to closing the raw material loops and sustainable energy research, to increase the value of primary mining products, secondary raw materials, their processing, and sustainable use in high-performance applications. Close collaboration with the industrial stakeholders ensures the industrial relevance of our high-quality scientific research and rapid transfer of the scientific results to market applications. By year 2030, the openly accessible RAMI RI targets to be an active national, European and global RI Hub, as it is already linked to infra-networks of the EIT Raw Materials.
