GMG Adelaide Forum: Secure and Integrated Energy and Mining Systems

Register Now »

Mar 20 - Mar 21

We have partnered with the University of Adelaide and Austmine to bring the mining and energy industries together to collaborate on achieving secure integration across the sector. Attendees will have the opportunity to consider the value and challenges of integration across value chains in mining and energy systems and will hear from industry leaders on their experiences, priorities and successes.

The industry’s need for integration is growing as resource variability and costs increase. Achieving integration that delivers robust, scalable and optimized value requires strong interoperability between information systems and a high level of cyber security – both of which are critical themes at this forum.

This event is an exciting chance for mining or energy companies seeking to integrate and optimize value chains and suppliers looking to offer them the best solutions to learn about the latest developments and projects and to engage in critical conversations enabling rapid digital development.

The University of Adelaide is a leader in research and development in both digital technology and the mineral and energy resources sector, and a host of many interdisciplinary research initiatives. Austmine is the leading industry body for the Australian Mining, Equipment, Technology and Services (METS) sector.
