Research collaborations to accelerate commercialisation


Are you an innovative METS company with a product ready for testing and piloting with world-class researchers?

The Innovation Launchpad provides an opportunity for scale-up SMEs to work with world-class researchers at the Newcastle Institute for Energy and Resources (NIER) to test, pilot and demonstrate new products leading to commercialisation and global competitiveness.

METS companies will be embedded with a NIER research group to provide high-impact research producing innovative outcomes to meet priority industry challenges, with access to a collaborative office environment and industrial research infrastructure.

The Launchpad will coordinate highly informative workshops and briefings by industry and research leaders, facilitate networking opportunities at regular events, and provide support to identify market opportunities through formal introductions to key industry and government stakeholders.

Find out more about the Innovation Launchpad and the available resources, knowledge, networks and infrastructure available to accelerate the commercialisation of mining innovation here.

METS Ignited is a proud supporter of this initiative, and continues to support METS programs in New South Wales in the capacity as advisory committee member for NIER and Chair of METS NSW.
