Project Funding Opportunity

The METS Ignited Collaborative Project Funds are intended to drive collaboration between Australian METS companies, global suppliers, mine operators, research organisations and capital providers to support the improved productivity, competitiveness and innovative capacity of the Australian METS and mining sectors.

The fourth round of the METS Ignited Collaborative Project Funds will focus on Analytics, Automation & Robotics.

Projects must be collaborative and industry-led with clear commercialisation applications that address opportunities in Analytics, Automation & Robotics applied to mining operations.  Applications for this round of funding must focus on projects that originate in Australia, have global impact, and will deliver substantial benefits to the METS sector.

Under the Project Funds program, METS Ignited is encouraging the development of projects led by a METS company collaborating with at least two other METS companies and working closely with funding from an end-user, such as a mining company, system integrator or OEM. Projects supported by researchers as subject matter experts will be highly regarded.

Project Funds — Applications are now under review for the fourth round of funding

Successful projects must be led by a METS company and collaboration is interpreted as requiring the participation of at least two additional METS companies (one applicant METS company collaborating with two others) together with at least one end-user or customer that leads to a sustainable benefit for all parties.

This funding opportunity from METS Ignited can be accessed by industry via an Expression of Interest (EOI) process.
