Innovation Central Perth September News

An Innovation Central Perth Update 


Australian Subsea Business Awards 

Innovation Central Perth is excited to announce that we are sponsoring the Australian Subsea Business Award for Industry Collaboration!

The award recognises exemplary collaboration between a company or industry body and at least one other organisation, resulting in the delivery of an improved service or product demonstrated in the Australian market.

Our sponsorship will include provision of a joint project for the winning organisations, run through our centre. The project, developed in partnership with ICP will build on the winning service or product, or explore other avenues to design, build, and deliver a prototype to test out a concept or process.

The package will include facilitated access to:

– Cisco solutions engineers;
– Curtin University research expertise and campus infrastructure to run trials;
– Operational and information technology resources (e.g. equipment, sensors) in the centre’s own Digital Lab; and
– Project management support.

Good luck to everyone involved!

Industry experts, Kye Topping from Curtin University, Francis Norman from NERA – National Energy Resources Australia and Imogen Bartlett from Optus and Curtin University students share their insight on what can be achieved when industry and academia meet on common ground.
