r4 Integration and Transfer Project (r4 INTRA)
Sub-project 2: Operative project coordination and estimating the resource efficiency potentials
The integration and transfer project “r4-INTRA“ accompanies the nation-wide funding measure “r4 - Innovative technologies for resource efficiency – research for the provision of raw materials of strategic economic importance“. Its objective is to use research and development to increase the supply of primary and secondary raw materials of strategic economic importance. r4-INTRA wants to enhance the innovativeness of the funded projects by targeted networking and transfer activities. In addition, it is examined which contribution the funding measure makes to achieving the funding objectives. Because the r4 funding measure is part of the FONA Framework Programme, it plays a particular role in contributing to sustainability and to improving resource efficiency. This is why the integration and transfer project analyses the sustainability impacts of the measure and their benefits for resource efficiency and supply security.
