Industry-led initiatives and projects

METS Ignited is developing industry-led initiatives to fast-track the innovation cycle, de-risk investment, and improve collaboration to strengthen Australia's mining innovation system.

METS Ignited Projects Funds EOI

On 10 November 2016, METS Ignited launched an industry-wide initiative to support, encourage and fund sector-wide collaboration.

METS Ignited is looking for dollar-for-dollar matched investment for collaborative, industry-led projects with clear commercialisation applications and which address at least one of the key themes in the SCP, or to establish METS Living Lab nodes/sandpits as part of an industry wide living lab network. Proposals close on 23 December 2016.

METS Living Labs Network

The first of our initiatives is the Mining Living Labs Network , bringing R&D providers, METS companies and miners closer together to work on significant industry challenges.

On 29 September we launched a process to seek industry input into the process to help identify available supply and future demand for mine testing environments. The process closed on 28 October 2016 and expressions of interest are currently being reviewed.
