Innovation occurs when divergent concepts come together to form a solution. At Swinburne’s Innovation Precinct, multi-disciplinary teamwork is fostered through co-creation spaces, collaboration opportunities, as well as programs and events. It’s an innovation ecosystem that supports ideas both big and small. Find out how the Innovation Precinct can turn your ideas into reality.
