Presented by Cisco and La Trobe University as founding partners of the National Industry Innovation Network (NIIN), we are pleased to invite you to join an exclusive event at THETA to launch our latest report

‘Smart Campus Living Lab – Transforming the University Campus’

A smart campus living lab is critical to accelerating scientific innovation and adoption of advanced technologies. Traditionally, the translation of novel research into real-world application and impact can take years. It involves rounds of accepting, trialling and putting it in the hands of industry. By converting a university campus into a real-life testbed, we are able to get industry involved much earlier and more effectively leverage the underlaying platforms that universities have already put in place.
