Metals treatment, new ore mining technologies, remote and automated mining equipment control,raw materials concentration and quality control.

Largest companies in the areas with traditionally difficult and closed for start-ups make their proposals to projects from metallurgy, diamond mining and related industries to present their technologies and gain refinement, implementation, building of joint business, investment attraction or sale of technology.

A man has been mining metal for a long time. In particular, the traces of copper smelting discovered in the 1950s–1960s in Minor Asia date back to the 7th–6th millennium B. C. Today, the share of the metallurgical industry in Russia's GDP is about 5 %, in industrial production — about 18 %, in exports — about 14 %.

For the first time, the Mining & Metals track appeared in the accelerator in 2016, in the GenerationS-2017 track will again unite technology developers for the mining and metallurgy industry.

The main stages of the track
Investment Partners track
R&D Park is the first infrastructure in Russia for technology development and its transfer to industrial partners. Russia’s biggest precious metals refinery – Krastsvetmet is a core industrial partner of R&D Park.
R&D Park’s activity goes beyond precious metals field into the areas of new products and new businesses development helping Krastsvetmet to achieve its strategic goals. Industrial partners and members of R&D Park are involved in this activity, enhancing its output.
R&D Park members are provided with professional evaluation for their developments, opportunity to pilot-test their projects at the existing production, access to the newest laboratory equipment and precious metals for the research purposes. Financing opportunities are affordable through the established Krastsvetmet’s partner network.
"RT - Business Development" LLC offers professional asset management services targeting financial and industrial projects based on best global practices in the corporate management of investment projects.
