Project description

The aim of the EMFIS Network of Infrastructure project is to bring together parties from the EIT KIC RM highly experienced in performing comprehensive material stock-flow analyses, and who have developed own conceptual structures for database development, and who have built data reconciliation and harmonization tools.  This network will offer a platform that facilitates all future projects of the EIT KIC RM consortium in which data mining activities related to material flow and stocks plays a role. Close collaboration will be created with DG GROW, DG JRC (Petten and Ispra) and EEA, UN International Resources Panel and the OECD. This NoI will complement an NoI on primary materials data set up by geological surveys (RMIData4Industry), and a NoI on the Sustainability Support and Information Centre (SSIC) that aims to provide a service for industry and technology developers on how to design, develop and evaluate innovations leading to sustainable materials management
