Melbourne Knowledge Week

What is the public purpose of innovation districts?

Tuesday 21 May, 10.30am - 11.30am

Melbourne Innovation Forum

The Melbourne Innovation District is part of a global wave of urban best practice to demonstrate leadership in the knowledge economy.

Watch the live-recording of this event over on our Knowledge Melbourne Facebook page now. 

Melbourne is very well-positioned to foster and grow thriving innovation districts given the presence of world-class universities, a dynamic and highly-educated start-up scene and its reputation in liveability. But how can we make the most of our innovation districts? What is their purpose beyond being a shiny showcase for innovativeness and smartness? How could innovation districts help to make our city resilient in the face of its massive sustainability challenges? What does this mean for the design and governance of the Melbourne Innovation District?
