New mining innovation centre launched in Queensland
A new mining equipment, technology and services (METS) growth centre has been launched today in Queensland.
The $20 million centre, known as METS Ignite was opened at the Queensland University of Technology by the minister for industry, innovation and science, Christopher Pyne.
It has been established as part of the Government’s wider $225 million Industry Growth Centres initiative, and is designed to boost the nation’s competiveness.
“The resource sector’s continual drive to increase efficiency and productivity means there is a demand for improved equipment, technology and services,” Pyne said.
“The future prosperity of the mining equipment, technology and services sector will depend on its ability to remain globally competitive and seize these global opportunities.
“This new Growth Centre will ensure this very important sector of Australian industry receives the support it needs to prosper in an increasingly competitive and globalised market.”
QLD development minister Dr. Anthony Lynham welcomed the news.
