SMIG offers to act as Mining innovation enabler, Single point of contact for test and demonstration, and Funding and project support.

The SMIG project delivers a proposal of the future SMIG organization that the aim is to enable the mining industry to accelerate the use of innovations and new solutions targeting to reach a fully automated mining operation. The SMIG test environment includes a business model, organisation and offerings as well as a framework for technology-independent information exchange. The test environment has been supported by several use cases.

At Euro Mine Connect, June 1st – 3rd SMIG had a “Digital Booth” presenting the different parts of SMIG as the following “Products”:
