Webinar Recording: Supplier Innovation Program - New Challenges & Opportunities

The recording is now available for the Austmine BHP Supplier Innovation Program webinar where we launched new challenges to the market, provided an overview of the submission process and shared major success stories from previous challenges. 

The Supplier Innovation Program delivers a series of challenges or business problems to METS sector participants and invites their participation to develop solutions to these challenges in an open innovation approach. The winning solution has the opportunity to become a paid pilot program, with the potential for the supplier to win ongoing work with BHP.

  • Katrina O’Brien, Head of Innovation & Commercial Alliances, BHP
  • Camila Cáceres, Principal Community & Innovation, BHP
  • Kester Hubbard, Specialist Supply Innovation, BHP
  • Craig Samuel, Aftermarket & Reliability Engineer, Jord International
