Tata Steel Innoventure Program

Austmine and Tata Steel (India) are implementing the Innoventure program in Australia, Tata Steel’s flagship METS engagement program.

Innoventure allows Australian solution providers to access the Indian mining market and collaborate with a $23B global steel manufacturing company. This partnership will see Australian METS start-ups and SMEs engage with Tata Steel and access opportunities to add innovation and advanced technologies to their value chain. Austmine will support the Innoventure Program by connecting innovative METS solutions to Tata Steel’s operations across India. 

For more information about how Innoventure works, view our Program Launch Webinar recording.
