Introducing the METS Business Model Benchmarking Tool

This video presentation by Dr Henri Burgers explains what a business model is, why a business model is important to a firm’s success and how METS firms can take steps to create a better business model:

Innovation in the METS sector

We conducted in-depth interviews with Queensland METS firms to discover how they overcame barriers affecting the diffusion of new technology across the mining ecosystem.  See how in this 4-minute video.

Introducing the iCAT tool

Funded by the Cooperative Research Centre for Optimising Resource Extraction (CRC ORE), the Innovation Culture Assessment Tool was developed to identify organisational barriers to innovation adoption in mining. A survey of 216 mining representatives identified nine key building blocks that form an innovation culture in mining. Watch the video to learn more.
