The implementation of the Federal Government’s National Science and Innovation Agenda saw the creation of six Growth Centres, including both METS Ignited and National Energy Resources Australia (NERA). New opportunities exist for both funding and collaboration in the broader resources area. Progressing the development and adoption of new innovations can be difficult in this challenging space, and access to such funding and collaboration opportunities at the right time can provide companies with a significant advantage during their commercialisation endeavours.

The Resources Innovation Group (RIG) invites you to our next event at which Peter Clarke of METS Ignited and Jill Stajduhar of NERA will present in an environment designed to provide opportunity for questions and consultation around funding and collaboration opportunities which could significantly benefit your business.

If you are involved in the areas of mining equipment, technology and services (METS) or energy resources, including the oil, gas, coal seam gas, coal and uranium sectors, come join us to learn how best to practically position yourself to take advantage of the opportunities available with both METS Ignited and NERA.
