METS Ignited Meet & Greet

Innovation Central Perth held a Meet & Greet for the four companies selected by METS Ignited to take part in ICP’s 12-month membership program. This membership aims to accelerate the uptake of IoT technology and help companies with their digitisation journey.

It was great to bring together company representatives from BisXsightsRoborigger and Integrity Engineering Solutions to meet the team and show them around ICP.

We look forward to aiding the development and commercialisation of IoT technology throughout your industries as part of this membership program.

Congratulations to all!

2020 / 2021 Summer Intern Program Launch

Last week kicked off the start of Innovation Central Perth’s 2020 / 2021 Summer Intern Program!

This year’s cohort is made up of 32 students from a diverse range of degrees. Interns commencing their projects will begin investigating digital transformation within multi-disciplinary fields – from radiology, robotics and recycling, to animal behaviour and space! This is an exciting summer intern round and we cannot wait to see all of the projects unfold!

The program’s induction day was held on Tuesday 24th November where interns had the chance to meet with Program Manager, Ash Roberts to discuss the program outcomes and deliverables as well as go through any final queries they had regarding their internships.

Throughout the course of the week, the summer interns also visited ICP to have a meet and greet with the centre’s current marketing and technical interns. ICP’s marketing and technical interns shared what it’s like to work at ICP and also went through some handy tips and tricks to help the new students throughout the course of their internship.

These meet and greets allowed the new summer cohort to get to know ICP’s current interns and ask any questions they had regarding the program and what it’s like to work at ICP.

It was great to meet you all! Good luck on your projects, we look forward to seeing all of the outcomes!
