Future Minerals program and workshops in Perth

METS Ignited
Thursday, 11 May, 2017

METS Ignited launched its Future Minerals Workforce Program in Perth this week.

METS Ignited collaborated closely with the Minerals Council of Australia to design a program that assists senior managers to prepare their organisational and workforce strategies now and for the future in response to technological advancements, changing social expectations, globalisation and business model transformation.

The program is designed around four themes of creating purpose, unlocking potential, capabilities of the future and the collaboration imperative.

It is recommended for general managers, senior managers and HR professionals from METS and mining companies; mining research, education and training providers; and government organisations.

Registrations are open until Friday, 30 June 2017.

Free workshop connects SMEs and researchers

METS Ignited and Knowledge Commercialisation Australasia (KCA) have also collaborated to host a free workshop exploring the opportunities for METS companies to connect with public sector research organisations to deliver new products to meet a changing marketplace.

The Accessing Innovation workshop in Perth on Monday, 22 May is a pathway for SMEs searching for research and development input to expand their product commerciality. Australia’s research sector is renowned for its excellence and this is an opportunity to develop further relationships.

Workshop participants will hear from METS companies who have successfully partnered with researchers to develop products, and learn where to source funding and assistance with their future research and development needs.

The workshop is supported by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, and forms part of METS Ignited’s sponsorship of Austmine 2017, which begins on Tuesday, 23 May at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. The workshop is open to the community; participants do not have to be registered for the Austmine 2017 conference to attend.
