The MINE.THE.GAP team is pleased to invite SMEs to submit project proposals in response to the MINE.THE.GAP Second Open Call, which has opened on 10 January. MINE.THE.GAP will support SMEs with two types of innovation vouchers to address the current challenges of the raw materials and mining value chain and to help the sector to become more sustainable and digital. Therefore, the call asks SMEs from eligible countries to team up with cooperation partners to develop innovative solutions.
The call is open until 14 March 2022, 17:00 CET. The call documents are available on this website under “Open Calls”. SMEs are invited to read the call text carefully and to submit as early as possible before the deadline to avoid any problems with the submission.

MINE.THE.GAP will fund collaborative activities between two or three for-profit and/or public SMEs that work in the raw materials and mining sector, ICT, Advanced Manufacturing, Resource Efficiency and Circular Economy. They need to come from at least two of the MINE.THE.GAP consortium countries or from a country of the Mining Industry Smart Specialisation Platform, which are: Bulgaria, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Poland, Portugal, Spain, or Sweden. Each interested SME can apply with one or several projects in one or more calls in accordance with its needs and can manifest their interest in the collaboration platform offered by MINE.THE.GAP. For this, SMEs are invited to create a profile.
