Networking and Growth Session on incentives for R&D and supply chain development at the Mining Precinct.
On 24 January 2018 MEMSA hosted a Networking and Growth Session on incentives for R&D and supply chain development at the Mining Precinct. The session had been arranged with support from the dti and DST, and directors working with the respective incentives came to present and interact.
MEMSA’s partners including SAMPEC, SACEEC, the Precinct and the Chamber of Mines were represented. The result was a very successful workshop which opened doors for more effective uptake of incentive opportunities, and engagement between industry and government.
