Inventing the Future Information Session

20th Jun 2017 3:00pm-4:00pm

If you are a postgraduate or HDR student from the Faculty of Business, Architecture, Design and Planning, Science or Engineering with a desire to invent solutions for the future, this is for you.

Inventing the Future is an inter-disciplinary invention program run on 6 intensive Fridays across semester 2 covering the complete process of innovation, from ideation to prototyping (budget provided) to a funding pitch to industry, enabled by interdisciplinary collaboration and cross-faculty teaching.

You will work in inter-disciplinary teams on real world briefs supported up by research academics and industry partners. This semester’s focus will be:

  1. Precision Animal Health: use of technology such as sensors, robotics and analytics to improve the health and welfare of livestock. This project could also apply to wildlife/conservation. 
  2. Sustainable Packaging: addressing the critical issue of waste by reducing the environmental impact of packaging. This could include approaches to make it more recyclable, reducing packaging or making it from less damaging materials. 
  3. Robotics for Rescue: Robotics allow us to provide services remotely, and in dangerous environments. The project will consider how robotics can assist in rescue situations including natural disasters, such as fire and flooding, and using technology such as real time machine vision systems.

Places available for this program are strictly limited.
