Regional Center Freiberg
The TU Bergakademie Freiberg (TU BAF), together with the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden Rossendorf (HZDR), is one of the core partners of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), located within the Knowledge and Innovation Community EIT RawMaterials (KIC EIT Raw Materials). The main aim of the EIT is to improve sustainable growth and competitiveness within Europe through enhancing the innovation capacity of the EU Member States.
In September 2015, the foundation was laid for creating the “EIT RawMaterials – Regional Center Freiberg”. The office will be playing a vital role in fostering the regional promotion of science and research, public and professional education, as well as environmental protection.
