Living Lab

Page hero image

We're actively working with partners to establish the city as a ‘Living Lab’, a place to encourage experimentation, research and the development of solutions to city challenges and issues.


The Living Lab framework includes:

  • Digital and technology capabilities that enable prototyping, testing and evaluation of new products, services and ideas.
  • Soft infrastructure such as workshops, user groups and community panels - to involve city residents in trialling new ideas and citizen science projects.
  • Capability to deploy connected sensors across the LGA to help us understand our environment and make more informed decisions.
  • The Internet of Things (IoT) advanced technology that incorporates the capacity to sense and obtain data to understand the environment and urban systems and assets.
  • Data that can help us better understand and respond to issues such as urban heat island effect, air pollution, flood management and water sustainability.
