ICT Roadmap for Minerals and Energy Resources Project
South Australia is home to a project exploring how to establish a national Information and Communications Technology (ICT) hub to service resources and energy projects.
The ICT Roadmap for Minerals and Energy Resources Project is industry-led and driven by the Australian Information Industries Association (AIIA) in partnership with the Department of Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy (DMITRE).
The Roadmap is the first stage in a plan to establish in Adelaide a national hub (or cluster) of mining and energy ICT expertise based on leading edge innovation. It also aims to help realise one of the South Australian Government’s Seven Key Priorities: Realising the benefits of the mining boom for all South Australians.
The final Roadmap will cover:
- current use of ICT in mining
- future trends
- immediate requirements
- future opportunities.
The Roadmap will identify innovative ICT approaches and new, high-value solutions to minerals and energy resources challenges. These solutions will significantly improve productivity, supply chain management, occupational health and safety, data collection and management, and global competitiveness.
The project will build on existing intellectual and technical expertise in the mining and energy resources industry, capture knowledge, attract new businesses and industries and develop internationally competitive clusters of mining service businesses in South Australia.
The project brings together experts from industry, the research sector and government though a series of Roundtable events.
Starting in April 2013, interviews will be conducted with key stakeholders in minerals and energy resources, ICT and mining, equipment, technology and services (METS) sectors across Australia.
The following documents provide useful background information for interviewees.
