Research Priority Plan

The Research Priority Plan describes the medium to long term knowledge and technology needs of the State’s minerals industry to ensure it can deliver an economic and social benefit for Western Australia.

Priorities included in the Plan are intended to be those issues industry, the research sector and the MRIWA Board agree present real and significant challenges inhibiting Western Australians from benefiting from the minerals sector to its fullest extent and where resolution of these will create opportunities and deliver value.

This Plan is used by MRIWA to identify the key areas where investments will be made into high impact research and development. Those seeking to work with MRIWA on our Impactful Research program will need to demonstrate alignment with the priorities outlined in the Plan and how their proposals deliver economic and social benefit for Western Australia.
