On 6 December 2013, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, participated in the launching event of the Raw Materials University Day initiative at La Sapienza University in Rome, Italy.
The initiative is organised in the framework of the communication strategy of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Raw Materials. The main objectives of the Raw Materials University Day initiative are to show to potential students the attractiveness of the raw materials sector and career opportunities for future graduates, and to inform them that the industries using raw materials will become increasingly innovative and green in the future - e.g. digital and green economy.

||Soundbite by Antonio Tajani (in ITALIAN) saying that they worked inside the European Union trying to change the laws on the extraction policy; they changed the directive called 'Natura 2000' trying at the same time to protect the environment but also to allow to extract what we have as raw materials; there are not much but some.

||Soundbite by Antonio Tajani (in ITALIAN) saying that Europe and the European industry need jobs for young people; it is the key element and the reason why they are there; because his intention isn't to give a lesson or a political speech; what he wants to explain is the EU is doing to help European citizens.
