INNOVATION AT CEMI: A STRATEGIC AND RIGOROUS PROCESS
CEMI’s innovation approach across each of the five project categories (FindMine, DeepMine, ValueMine, SustainMine & BizMine) is focused, purposeful and systematic to ensure solutions are sustainable and economically feasible for the mining industry. It is a fourphased aggregative process (RD + I&C). Research (R), an essential component, includes academic or university-based research. Equally important, is applied research to address practical applications.
The identification of new ideas is only the first step.The Demonstration (D) phase assures the application and workability of the idea, while Implementation (I) is the element within the innovation process that investigates operational viability. And finally, Commercialization (C) ensures the market acceptance and adoption into the routine application of a mining operation. This final step is the proof of a successful innovation.
CEMI is situated at the crossroads where industry knowledge, expertise, imagination, practical management know-how, business acumen and collaboration networks exist to provide scientific and technical advances that are essential, to turn ideas into workable and implementable solutions. It is this disciplined approach to innovation that CEMI successfully integrates in working with its collaborating partners.
“The mining industry is going through a number of changes. We need innovation to thrive so that the mining industry can be competitive and prosper. CEMI is the go-to source to provide that innovation to the mining industry.”
