Transport and Logistics Knowledge Hub
"A Knowledge Hub is a way of industry, government and research meeting together to maximize the benefit of innovation."
- Neil Temperley, Data61
The Transport and Logistics' Living Lab is a Knowledge Hub that seeks to increase the productivity, efficiency and safety of Australia's transport and logistics industry by fostering collaborative innovation.
The Living Lab is coordinated by Data61 (formerly known as NICTA), Australia's centre of excellence for Information, Communications and Technology (ICT) research. This Knowledge Hub provides a platform for industry, research and government to meet, to work together, to investigate real-world problems and provides a physical space to demonstrate innovative technology to provide transport and logistics solutions for the future.
Led by industry members, this national lab facilitates the connection of a fragmented transport and logistics industry to innovation and best-practice activities from research and industry.
Established in June 2015, the Living Lab leads a number of projects including Trade Facilitation via Technology. This project brings together industry partners across the supply chain, government and researchers to discover the potential contribution of technology to supply chain security and trust.
The Living Lab holds quarterly industry workshops and welcomes new participants. Tours of their Eveleigh demonstration labs can be organised by appointment. If you are interested in learning more or getting involved contact Living Lab Manager.
