Eramet Ideas organized an "Open Day" on April, 3rd and welcomed 85 people from all over Europe at the innovation center. An event full of experiences sharing in a friendly atmosphere, and an opportunity to launch the Eramet Open Innovation Challenge.
The strong involvement of Eramet Ideas’ teams allowed one-day visitors to discover the facilities under optimal conditions. The participants, most of whom were scientists from industry, research centers or universities, had the opportunity to explore the laboratories and pilot installations of the innovation center, around the main themes addressed at Eramet Ideas, which are extractive metallurgy and recycling.
In the same way as partnerships and collaborative approaches have been set up within the French and European R&D ecosystem, Eramet Ideas could not have found a more appropriate time to launch its first Open Innovation Challenge.
This contest of ideas which is now open until June, 5th aims at gathering the efforts and creativity of all candidates in order to find a solution to improve the management of silica in the lithium process in Argentina.
