Collaborate with us

The concept of a cluster is well established in mature international markets such as Europe and North America. In the EU for example, almost 30% of business is conducted through networks of technology companies, even where these organisations compete in their own right. A successful cluster usually consists of a mapped and growing ecosystem of collaborating companies and related stakeholders.

Considering the future needs of the Mining Sector – with a highly coordinated ecosystem of technology vendors with an orchestrated set of integrated applications – it is key for Australia to embrace the collaboration model that cluster initiatives provide.

METS Ignited can help establish your cluster initiative. Find out more about how you can contribute to a collaborative project for the mining sector, please contact our team today.
