New York, Beijing, Istanbul… now Adelaide!

The South Australian Government has entered into an agreement with world-leading University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), to collaborate on the development of a Living Lab at Adelaide’s innovation precinct, Lot Fourteen.

MIT Living Labs have already been established in New York, Beijing and Istanbul, meaning South Australia is now well placed to lead the way globally in the analysis of big data.

The Living Lab, enabled by principal partner BankSA and supported by technology partner Optus Business, will bring together the public, private and research sectors, analysing data to determine the most effective ways for South Australia to drive both economic and sustainable population growth.

Its location at Lot Fourteen will mean those working in the Living Lab will have unparalleled access to businesses across a range of high-growth and high-tech industries.
