Raw Material Ambassadors

Bologna University


"Raw MatTERS”, is our message: raw materials are our focus, whatever their origin. Tackling European Resources Sustainably (TERS). We want to actively tackle the challenge ahead of us. Sustainability and the efficient use of natural resources are of central importance in everything we do. Achieving this vision really matters to us.


Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) are 17 societal goals, which were ratified by the UN in 2015. The goals are multi-layered and need to be tackled together to balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental. Together with 192 other states Austria declared to support the SDGs. Raw materials and their processing have a considerable impact on development, economy and modern society.

The Montanuniversitaet Leoben has vast expertise on the value-life-cycle of raw materials which is mirrored in the responsible use of these resources. Montanuniversitaet will contribute its competence to the SDG 4 (Quality Education) and SDG 13 (Climate Action).

This project aims to involve our students in experiments and communication activities. RM@Schools involves 28 partners from 18 EU countries and a strategic network composed of 26 Universities/ Research Centres, 60 Schools and 22 Companies. Besides, many connections are established with other European projects, which take advantage of the educational method developed by RM@Schools.
