WELCOME TO RIG
Resources Innovation Group (RIG) is concerned with inventive solutions in the resources sector. Our members canvas ideas and input from resource sector peers. Its intention is to provoke and stimulate feedback and thought leadership on innovation for people involved in mining, oil & gas and heavy industrial industries, and for those with an active interest in innovation and intellectual property.
RIG’s workshops and seminars provide a platform for attendees to discuss and debate issues affecting the resources sector, and upcoming challenges and threats to the industry. It is intended to be a “system of innovation” – an effective network of like-minded individuals and organisations. Participants are encouraged to share knowledge, offer insights on developing best practice to improve planning, delivery and management of innovation in the resources sector.
