The specialist METS business hub, co-working and education space supports start-ups, small and medium businesses and industry working across the mining sector.

The new satellite hub will allow businesses to take advantage of CORE Innovation Hub’s well-established national mining and resources ecosystem, where they will be able to connect with potential partners, work with industry experts and expand their business network.

Newman Innovation Hub Lead Natalie Jones said: “This initiative is a huge investment into the future of Newman and the surrounding Pilbara region.

“The Hub will help drive our local regional businesses forward in Newman, across the Pilbara and beyond.”
