Meet the innovator

CORE's Meet the Innovator series connects you to innovators in the resources and energy sector, sharing insights about their work, global opportunities and their professional journey. Meet the Innovator is your opportunity to ask questions and meet some of the brightest minds in the sector.


Industry Happy Hour

The CORE Industry Happy Hour is an opportunity to meet in a neutral space and network with like-minded professionals. It brings together operators, suppliers, contractors, startups, entrepreneurs, SMEs and other innovators across the resources and energy sector for regular networking on the last Friday of the month. 

Each month we have an industry partner co-host the night. Contact us if you would like to co-host.

Go to the events page to find out about upcoming sessions. 



CORE members have access to Experts from the resources, innovation and government sectors. Experts attend CORE on a regular schedule to provide information, feedback, professional services and funding pathways. 



Through its resident accelerator Unearthed, CORE is opening up access to innovators and startups, to help transform traditional operating models, diversify businesses and positively disrupt the resources sector in order to better serve customers and communities. 

Unearthed addresses  industry-­wide challenges and builds new startups across Australia that are helping to reduce costs, and improve productivity and global competitiveness. It is bringing its network of mentors, emerging startups and industry challenges to CORE.
