Digital tech's transformation of resources & energy, CORE Skills Ambassador Ricus Grimbeek, linking research & industry with ECU, Co-work@CORE & Events

How is digital technology disrupting the resources sector?
CORE Skills Ambassador Ricus Grimbeek predicts the next 5 to 10 years will see a profound transformation of the industry due to digital technology, and it is going to be very quick if you look at what has happened in other industries that have been disrupted. The AI Group's Developing the Workforce for a Digital Future report released last week highlights that lifelong learning and regular upskilling will be essential as we move into what is becoming known as Industry 4.0.

At CORE we embrace this change and are building a culture of entrepreneurship, open innovation, trust, collaboration and speed to market in the resources & energy sector. Join us as we work to shape the future of the sector, today.

As we grow CORE Skills through the Perth and Brisbane hubs and beyond, we are delighted to recognise prominent members of the energy and mining communities as CORE Skills Ambassadors.

Our first Ambassador is mining industry heavyweight Ricus Grimbeek. We caught up with him to get his views on how the sector can best equip itself for a complete digital transformation. Read the Medium article, and why not follow us while you're at it?
