TEXMiN Innovation Hub

Promoting CPS technologies in mining and exploration

About TEXMiN

In order to carry out the activities of TIH at IIT (ISM), a section 8 Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) has been established in the name of Technology Innovation in Exploration & Mining Foundation [TEXMiN].
The section 8 company is working as an umbrella body to nurture and promote the objectives and activities of the TIH as per the approved DPR within the framework of NM-ICPS, DST, GoI.

With leading-edge knowledge, competency and facilities, the TEXMiN Hub will foster research innovation, world-class technology, and product development in context of Mining 4.0. TIH will work in close collaboration with the mining industry to deliver industrial technology and products and create a vibrant innovation ecosystem by providing a reliable platform for technology-based start-ups and entrepreneurs.

Mining, exploration is the foundation of all value creation. It identifies new ore bodies for development, replenishes reserves depleted through production, and replaces those rendered uneconomic by falling commodity prices. TEXMiN Hub will foster research innovation, world-class technology, and product development in context of Mining 4.0 based on AI, IoT, Big Data Intregation.

The implementation of the TIH activities will be based on TD: Technology Development, CoE Centre of Excellence, HRD: Human Resource Development & Skill Development I&E: Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Start-ups Ecosystem IC: International collaborations. to achieve sustainability. The implementation of the Hub activities will be made through TMU governed by the HGB created for the purpose.
