The EIT has created the so-called KIC -Knowledge Innovation Communities, communities that aim to promote innovation and education in Europe in crucial sectors, supporting entrepreneurship and enhancingthe passage of new ideas from the incubation phase to the market. The EIT RawMaterials, which since 2016 has established one of its nodes in Rome, is particularly committed to addressing the global challenge ofsupplying raw materials in Europe through programs and projects that aim to develop technology throughout the entire value chain of raw materials: from the exploration of resources, to the mining industry, from metallurgical processes to the replacement of critical or toxic raw materials, from the recycling of end-of-life product materials to the design of products for the circular economy. As part of its regional development programs, the EIT RawMaterials has created a Hub in the Puglia Region coordinatedby ENEA, in order to increase the involvement of the local ecosystems in the activities of KIC and its partnership. The MedinHubwill also aim to reach new organizations and promotingthe participation of the most innovative industries and SMEs, as well as the involvement of the prestigious universities and research centres in the area.
