Public Release: 

New information system on raw materials

European Commission Joint Research Centre

The RMIS provides a structured repository of knowledge on non-energy-related raw materials. This includes links to data, methods, approaches and indicators related to the most relevant activities on raw materials in a European context and beyond. The RMIS thereby contributes to consolidating the EU raw materials knowledge base, and aims at strengthening the visibility and competitiveness of the EU raw materials sector, while promoting green and sustainable growth.

The information is addressed to a broad range of stakeholders engaged or interested in the European raw materials sector. The RMIS contributes to the EU Raw Materials Initiative and supports the activities of the European Commission's Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs in the context of non-energy raw materials, including the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) and the European Raw Materials Knowledge Base (EURMKB).
