Europees Innovatiepartnerschap Grondstoffen: Call for Commitments

Deadline

Doelstellingen

in order to be successful, the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) needs to involve a very large number of partners across the European Union and the entire raw materials value chain that will carry out actions contributing to the objectives of the EIP.Actions by EU institutions alone will not be sufficient, nor will funding from the EU budget alone.  This is why the European Commission is launching an open call for commitments by actors in the private, public and non-governmental sectors including academia.It is anticipated that the call will trigger a number of individual commitments (referred to as Raw Material Commitments – RMCs) where the partners jointly commit to co-operate and take actions that will contribute to achieving the objectives of the Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP), in the different action areas. The aim is to mobilise a substantial part of the European raw materials community thus significantly increasing the positive impacts of the EIP. In order to be successful, the EIP needs to involve a very large number of partners across the European Union and the entire raw materials value chain that will carry out actions contributing to the objectives of the EIP.

The aim is to mobilise a substantial part of the European raw materials community thus significantly increasing the positive impacts of the EIP.  In order to obtain recognition as an RMC under the EIP, a commitment must be submitted using the special submission form by the date when the call closes.Furthermore, the commitment should meet all conditions set out in these guidelines and be liable to make a significant contribution to meeting the objectives of the EIP. If it does, it will be recorded as a commitment under the EIP. (If it does not, the partners can still of course carry out their planned activities without recognition as an RMC under the EIP). The recognition as an RMC is, in any case, not a pre-condition for EU funding for raw materials-related projects. It is planned to issue calls for commitments in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019.

Budget

Each commitment must have an indicative overall budget covering the whole activity  period, within a timeframe between 2014 and 2020 as part of the submission.  As far as possible, the budget of the commitment should specify the envisaged individual revenue sources as well as foreseen costs listed under the appropriate headings. For projects already being financed and which are on-going, any existing contribution from the EU budget must be clearly indicated. Where relevant, partners should indicate if they foresee an EU contribution.  

Begunstigden

Each commitment needs to be made on behalf of at least three partners, with one of the partners designated as co-ordinator and contact point and each of the three partners must be established in a different EU Member State. However, for commitments that are linked to non-technology policy actions in the SIP which target the national level, it may be sufficient to only have partners from one Member State. Participation by entities with their centre of activity in non-EU countries may be useful if it provides added-value, but is not a requirement. If the identity of all intended partners is not yet known, the appropriate profiles of partners should be indicated in the commitment proposal.
