We’re running a program to help businesses based in regional Victoria get involved in the mining supply chain.

The state’s mining industry is resurgent with some positive recent growth. The department is running a program so more businesses can be part of this success story.

The Mining Equipment Technology Services (METS) industries encompass a variety of services and support thousands of jobs in Victoria – including mineral exploration, mining products, engineering consulting, construction, information technology and professional services.

The METS Regional Innovation Accelerator program is designed to help regionally based businesses to engage with local mining companies, fast-track product innovation and promote their services.

The 2020 winter program has been designed as an online seminar program consisting of weekly sessions for eight weeks. Four of the sessions will be mini workshops, where current issues will be presented and discussed, and four sessions will cover general business and skills development.

Innovation is at the heart of the METS sector and Ballarat’s Gekko Systems is a great example, read more about this via this Minister for Resources media release: Ballarat manufacturers rising to global challenge
