International projects

One of the main activities of the Foundation is the participation on international projects for the generation of new knowledge, the establishment of novel synergies and the promotion of novel technologies and solutions on the fields of interest. We can highlight here the participation of ICAMCyL in the Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe programmes, although we also dedicate our efforts to participate in other funding schemes including COST Actions, the European Institute of Technology (EIT) and the Interreg programmes.

The following list includes those projects that we are already participating in, which are related to fields like mining, sustainability, raw materials or solar energy:

Call: H2020-MSCA-IF-2020 GA: 101024565 01/06/2022 – 31/05/2025

Selective recovery of Critical Raw Materials (CRMs) from underexploited mining side streams can contribute to reducing the European dependence on imports of these refractory metals. RUMBA: “Selective Recovery of CRMs (Nb, Ta, W) by Using MOFs Based Adsorbents” aims to improve the efficiency of conventional hydrometallurgical methods. These methods require the digestion of ores under strong acid or alkaline conditions and the recovery of CRM via liquid-liquid extraction. The feasibility for succeeding in the scientific and training objectives pursued in RUMBA is supported by the strong expertise of the host institution (ICAMCyL) in advanced mining technologies and the solid background of the researcher in synthesis and characterization of MOFs.
