Open innovation platform

for users across the entire oil and gas ecosystem

About the project

NERA collaborated with Eureka Platform Pty Ltd to form Nureka, an open-source platform, providing both innovation and collaboration capability within a single structure, for users across the entire oil and gas ecosystem.

Nureka facilitates innovation through collaboration within the energy resources sector in order to enhance competitiveness, increase productivity and facilitate export growth, through:

  • The collaboration function — which generates ideas, connections, and opportunities for organisations involved in the energy sector and individuals to engage, communicate, exchange and work together; and
  • The (linked) innovation function — which provides a matching capability enhancing the opportunity to facilitate challenges and solutions, support innovation and research and encourage investment and enable commercial transactions and contracts between users.


Nureka enabled NERA to promote and facilitate the initiatives outlined in its Sector Competitiveness Plan to a wide range of industry stakeholders across Australia and the world. Key benefits of the platform are:

  • Cross industry collaboration
  • Optimisation of R&D processes
  • Access to a global community of innovators and a wide range of new technologies and solutions
