REGISTER: $6m Project Funds Now Open Through METS Ignited Collaborative Project Funds
A series of information sessions on accessing the METS Ignited Collaborative Project Funds begin next week in Queensland, with Townsville and Mackay the first events.
The sessions are an opportunity to learn how to access matched funding to work collaboratively to commercialise innovation that will be of benefit to the METS and mining sectors.
The project funds close at the end of August. In the meantime, free information sessions will be held across Australia.
Additional spaces have been added in Mackay due to high numbers. Register here so you don't miss out!
Find out more about the Collaborative Project Funds. We look forward to seeing you soon.
