The CRC ORE team and Board have created a 6-year strategic plan, building on successes to date, and providing clear guidance for achieving CRC ORE’s objectives in the years ahead. The strategic plan is built around four key pillars: Invent, Integrate, Implement and Introduce. It establishes the basis for the smooth transition of CRC ORE outcomes to the METS and Minerals sector by 2021.
CRC ORE’s Innovation Pathway is aimed at realising a step-change in value across the whole-of-mine system. It is based on a pipeline of activities that span the widely used Technology Readiness Level (TRL 1-9) scale of technology maturity often referred to as ‘prototype to product’.
CRC ORE has ten Delivery Themes. These package the point solutions developed in CRC ORE’s Development Programs, integrating them into a business-facing approach carefully designed to help support the path of new technologies into the business world, where they can be fully tested and the value proposition refined. This is also done by introducing and connecting synergistic business partnerships to help realise technology adoption changes more quickly.
CRC ORE is funded by a host of forward-thinking collaborators, focussed on finding solutions to reverse the decade-long trend of productivity decline in the minerals industry.
CRC ORE facilitates the development of innovative solutions through a global consortium of Mining companies, Mining Equipment and Technology and Services (METS) companies and research institutions.
