Living Lab to deliver testing facilities for the resources sector

CORE is a proud participant in the The UWA Living Lab partnership with BHP and UWA. The project, initiated and developed by Professor Melinda Hodkiewicz, will enable local firms to inexpensively test tomorrow’s innovations today using the UWA campus facilities and student engineering.

The Living Lab has received funding as part of the METS Ignited Collaboration Project Fund Round 2, formally announced at a METS Ignited event at CORE in Perth this week. The announcement was made by the Australian Minister for Jobs and Innovation, the Hon Michaelia Cash, who spoke broadly about innovation in the resource sector.

The partnership between UWA, BHP and CORE Innovation Hub will establish a modern, dynamic relationship exploring innovative opportunities, new and exciting research and sharing of knowledge, ideas and prototypes between industry and academic experts. It will leverage the exceptional human capital and resources WA has to offer.

The UWA Living Lab project was the only university project to receive funding.
