METS Regional Accelerators

Queensland SMEs are delivering innovative solutions to prepare for the future, and are helping advance our mining and resources industries in the process.

METS Ignited and the Queensland Government are working together to ensure our regional SMEs are equipped with the skills they need to commercialise their ideas, build their business capability, and fully prepare to get their new products and services ready for market.

In 2019, METS Ignited and the Queensland Government are again supporting regional accelerator programs to improve the business capability development and the acceleration of commercial opportunities for METS companies based in regional Queensland.

Current programs:

MackHack Mining Hackathon - Mackay

Past programs:

CQ METS Accelerator Program - Rockhampton

METS Innovation Regional Accelerator (MIRA)- Darling Downs

In 2018, METS Ignited and the Queensland Government supported Regional Pre-Accelerator Programs run out of Mackay, Gladstone and Toowoomba; run by the Resource Industry Network (RIN), Gladstone Engineering Alliance (GEA) and Toowoomba Surat Basin Enterprise (TSBE) respectively.
