We are reimagining and working to help transform post-mine transitions by connecting Australia’s best researchers with industry, governments and regional and First Nations communities and organisations.
Our collaborative partnership is more than the sum of its parts. Together we’re rethinking what’s possible to improve outcomes for people, communities, the environment and industry.
Our research agenda covers some of the most complex post-mine transition challenges and opportunities: active and future economic transitions in mining regions, law and policy, water, landforms and seed scaling, biodiversity, education and training, social dimensions of mine closure, First Nations inclusion, and next land uses.
Rethinking post-mine transitions is more important than ever as decarbonisation drives unprecedented minerals development at the same time as leading to the progressive completion of thermal coal mining in some regions.
Established in 2020, CRC TiME is part of the Australian Government’s world-leading Cooperative Research Centre Program. It operates with support of the Commonwealth and more than 75 partners.
We are hosted by the University of Western Australia and University of Queensland.
