Welcome to the Minerals Research Institute of Western Australia
The Minerals Research Institute of Western Australia (MRIWA) is a statutory body established by the Western Australian Government under the Minerals Research Institute of Western Australia Act 2013 to stimulate minerals research to support investment in, and operation of, a globally competitive minerals industry in Western Australia.
MRIWA’s primary function is to provide and administer funding grants to carry out minerals research.
The Institute collaborates with research and government entities in Australia and overseas.
As well as directly supporting minerals research projects, MRIWA funds are available for projects, programs and events that promote public awareness of, and interest in, minerals research, and to support related academic activities.
The Minerals Research Institute of Western Australia Act 2013 repeals the Minerals and Energy Research Act 1987 thereby abolishing the Minerals and Energy Research Institute of Western Australia (MERIWA).
