METS Ignited is the Industry Growth Centre for the Mining Equipment, Technology and Services (METS) sector, funded by the federal government Department of Industry, Science and Resources. The Growth Centre objectives are to accelerate commercialisation of innovation in Australia, enhance industry skills and capabilities, and growing exports in sectors where Australia has recognised competitive advantage.
In operation for eight years, METS Ignited has invested $16 million into 35 projects, attracting over 2.5 times industry matched funding through 76 Industry partners. Our industry collaborative projects have established more than 20 new Australian innovations, creating over 1000 local jobs with a projected economic contribution of $900 million in revenue per annum by 2025.

Building on the success of the Growth Centre Program, METS Ignited is committed to transforming Australia’s local innovation capability into a sustainable segment of our national economy.

Our goal is to support Australian technology companies as the vehicle to translate local innovation into products and services, to serve global markets from within our national economy.
