RAISE, Raw mAterials Students IntErnships, is a European educational project of the area  «Wider Society Learning Activity» within EIT RawMaterials ACADEMY, coordinated by CNR and funded by EIT Rawmaterials.

RAISE allows access to second grade secondary school students to internships in research laboratories / companies operating in the raw materials and secondary raw materials sector. RAISE addresses a demand for professional guidance born within schools, raising awareness among young people on career opportunities in the field of raw materials, offering them tools that allow for a conscious involvement of university studies in disciplines related to raw materials. Motivated pupils are asked to access two / three weeks of internship focused on the thematic pillars of the KICs.
