Collaborative Project Fund information sessions


We would like to thank all of the attendees at the events for taking the time to meet with us to discuss the METS Ignited collaborative project funds and a new masterclass program.

METS Ignited hosted a series of free seminars on how to access its new round of collaborative project funds in June and July 2017.

The project funding is an opportunity for companies to secure matched funding to commercialise innovation that will benefit the Australian METS and mining sectors.

Session overview

Accessing collaborative Project Funds in PerthAs the industry Growth Centre for the METS sector, METS Ignited has been working with the mining industry to identify a range of challenges facing our national mining houses.

Further, we explored ways in which business can thrive in the new digital environment, gain access to intellectual and financial capital, and prepare the workforce for a future that needs new skills and capabilities.
