Collaboration is at the heart of SMI's operations.This means strong internal collaboration between SMI centres, research associations within The University of Queensland and external groups in Australia and overseas.

SMI's mission to be a world leader in providing knowledge-based solutions to the sustainability challenges of the global minerals industry relies on this collaboration.

With around 350 staff across seven inter-related research centres and its commercialisation company JKTech, SMI has a global presence and is developing rapidly-integrating research disciplines, generating new ideas, engaging stakeholders and delivering relevant outcomes.


One of the key aims of the SMI is to ensure that its work has an impact on Industry outcomes. This means that Knowledge Transfer through formal and informal avenues is a key component of our programs.

At the WH Bryan Mining Geology Research Centre (BRC), we are working as hard as we can to ensure that the outcomes and workflows associated with our research are communicated in a way that maximises Industry takeup and impact.
