ABOUT THE PROJECT

Mining and Metallurgy Institute Bor is one of the partners of the project named Building Ecosystem Integration Labs at HEI to foster Smart Specialization and Innovation on Sustainable Raw Materials – HEI4S3-RM which is coordinated by Universidad de Oviedo.

With great pleasure we invite you to visit the project website: https://hei4s3-rm.eu/


AIM OF THE PROJECT


The project was created to strengthen the building of innovation capacity in Europe, striving for long-term sustainable development using the idea of ​​the circular economy in order to modernize the raw materials and extractive sectors. The idea behind the circular economy is that the value of products, materials and resources is kept in the economy for as long as possible and the generation of waste is kept to a minimum. These activities make an important contribution to the EU’s efforts to develop a sustainable, low-carbon, resource-efficient and competitive economy.

The project aims to strengthen partnerships between higher education, business and research organizations by developing an innovative pathway for entrepreneurial universities.

HEI4S3-RM is implemented as part of the EIT (European Institute of HEI4S3-RM is implemented as part of the EIT (European Institute of Innovation & Technology) HEI (Higher education institutions) Initiative, which is a key goal of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) as part of its new strategy, the EIT strategic innovation plan for 2021 –2027..

METHODOLOGY


The HEI43-RM project is conducted according to the methodology. Accessible with favorable conditions (organizational, didactic, research, innovations, leading innovations) included in the research inter-dThe HEI43-RM project is conducted according to the methodology. Accessible with favorable conditions (organizational, didactic, research, innovations, leading innovations) included in the research inter-departmental conditions, cooperating within the consortium (between) Integrated Ecosystem Laboratories (EILs).

It includes the following activities:

– building ecosystem integration laboratories in each of the 6 HEIs to support smart specialization and innovation in the field of sustainable raw materials,

– promoting concrete actions for a broader entrepreneurial culture and teaching innovation and entrepreneurship in academia

– process management with the use of Management Boards by universities, involving management and non-academic specialists,

– building the capacity of specific multidisciplinary support structures that will be involved in managing the process of “HEI4S3-RM Innovators”

– exchange of good practice between EU universities.

CHALLENGES


The main challenge is to connect small and medium-sized but efficient universities with regional and local innovation ecosystems in the field of circular economy activities in the raw materials and mining sectors.

An important issue during the course is also reaching out to undergraduate and graduate students and doctoral students by encouraging them, inter alia, to participate in the Erasmus + program, which would, among other things, improve the mobility of learners.

The key element is the integration of scientific communities in various parts The key element is the integration of scientific communities in various parts of Europe as part of common challenges related to the circular economy and adaptation to the occurring climate changes.

FOR WHOM?


The project is aimed at European higher education institutions, which, thanks to this initiative, can become regional engines of innovation and support sustainable economic growth and create jobs across Europe.

Realized activities on the HEI4S3-RM project within WP4

Overview of activities within WP4 “Contribution to developing innovations and businesses”, members of the MMI Bor team implemented the following activities related to KPI in the period from July 1st, 2022 until now:
– KPI6: Number of business ideas registered in the HEI4S3-RM Knowledge Transfer & Innovation Idea Platform. MMI Bor members have started preparation of two ideas for implementation in cooperation with R. Serbia state funds, status in progress:
Proposal 1:
Optimization of technological processes of surface exploitation and processing of mineral raw materials – and all in the function of increasing energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Proposal 2:
Prediction and Environmentally Remediation of Acid Mine Drainage from Locations of Abounded Mining Waste in Republic of Serbia

KPI7: Support and development of (new and existing) University- Driven R&D Institutes/Centers

1. Within the existing site of the Mining and Metallurgy Institute Bor, a page has been opened that provides all the basic information related to the HEI4S3-RM Project and will be further updated in accordance with our activities.
https://irmbor.co.rs/projekti/medjunarodni-projekti/projekat-building-ecosystem-integration-labs-in-hei-project/

2. On August 10th, 2022 the training of PhD students (HEI INNOVATE – Sampling Training of PhD Students) was carried out in order to educate students for field sampling in accordance with the predicted procedures that were presented within the presentation

3. Participation of MMI Bor members and PhD students on first Co-Creation workshop for Cohort 2 projects, online event, held 27 – 28 September 2022.

HEI Initiative (cohort 2) Co-Creation Workshop Attendees lists

4. Within The 53rd International October Conference on Mining and Metallurgy held 3-5 October 2022, in Bor, Serbia

https://ioc.irmbor.co.rs

a scientific paper was published under the title: “ANALYSIS THE SURFACE OF MODIFIED LIGNIN BASED MICROSPHERES USED FOR SELENIUM ADSORPTION BY THE SEM-EDS ANALYTICAL METHOD”, the following authors: Vesna Marjanović, Radmila Markovic, Silvana Dimitrijević, Zoran Stevanović.

The paper deals with activities related to environmental protection and it has acknowledgment to the EIT-HEI Project: The authors are grateful for funding by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic Serbia, by the Registration No. 451-03-68/2022-14/200052. Also, this work was financially supported by the EU under Program 2nd EIT-HEI call: Building Ecosystem Integration Labs at HEI to foster Smart Specialization and Innovation on Sustainable Raw Materials – HEI4S3-RM.

 

KPI8: Number of Innovation-Driven Research Talent Labs
A MMI Bor team prepared laboratory and equipped for the implementation of the activities predicted by the HEI4S3-RM Project, where, among other things, tests aimed at characterizing mining waste will take place. This laboratory will be used also for training of students and young staff. The preparation of the supporting procedures of the methods is in progress

 

HEI4S3-RM Institutional Management Board
network meeting (Oviedo 10-11.10.2022)

In mid-October participants of the “Building Ecosystem Integration Labs at HEI to foster Smart Specialization and Innovation on Sustainable Raw Materials -HEI4S3-RM” project met in Oviedo, Asturias, Spain. During two days conference members had presented their plans for next 6 months.
Meeting was also the occasion for getting to know each other. Leader of the project presented Oviedo with its mining and industrial legacy and opportunities for future of Asturias. We have experienced unique character, customs and history of the regions. Those important integrations actions contribute to building strong European community both internally and externally which support EIT Raw Materials policy.
