CET Governance

Central to CET is the engagement of the CET Advisory Board and its committee: the Technical Working Group (TWG). These groups collectively have been tasked with ensuring proper governance of CET and ensuring that the science strategy and business directions are beneficial and relevant to the entire range of stakeholders. Members of these committees are from industry, key stakeholders and other collaborative partners.

In addition to the external committees, CET has an Executive Management Committee and a Senior Research Leaders Group, both comprised of CET staff, who collectively design and implement the strategy and management of the CET.

Advisory Board

The 12 members of the Advisory Board provide an invaluable perspective on the operation of the CET - and in particular to performance around our core goal of meeting the research needs of the exploration and mining industry. The majority of the members are independent of the CET and hail from a range of Industry and academic partners.
