The project

SIMP aims at reinforcing the Entrepreneurship Support Services of EIT Raw Materials and its partners aimed to startups in the Raw material sector.
SIMP worked by:

  • Cross-fertilisating existing good practices at Incubators or similar actors providers.
  • Developing new Entrepreneurship Support Services offering, tailor-made for the Raw Materials sector.


HIT played a key role in providing best practices established both via Trentino Sviluppo incubation methods and also through the experience of EIT Digital Business Community.
The SIMP consortium agreed on a pilot project of access to market activity which successfully brought 10 startups from all over Europe to one of the main mining industry event in Sweden (Euromine Expo).
