CRC ORE Annual Assembly
21 November 2017

Customs House, Brisbane 

The program for this year’s CRC ORE Annual Assembly 2017 has been released. Amongst this year's Annual Assembly line up will be addresses from Anglo American, Teck, Hatch and Curtin University. We will also hear from Insitu Pacific (a Boeing subsidiary) about their partnership with Advance Queensland, Telstra, QGC and eight Queensland small to medium enterprises to design, develop and test a world first prototype airspace situational awareness system. This will be an interesting look into a successful technology implementation project from outside the mining industry.

An Essential Participant Only event, the CRC ORE Implementation Council is scheduled for the following day.
