WA Innovation Hub responds to community ideas

Posted by The iThink Team (Admin) 3 months ago

A new WA Innovation Hub (the Hub) led by iThink ambassador Professor Fiona Wood, and City of Canning’s Chief Innovation Officer, Jemma Greene has been established to connect iThink’s innovative ideas with the right people. This partnership is a great example of government, business, academic institutions and community groups working together to find solutions to particular challenges created by the pandemic.

So far, the Hub has evaluated nearly 100 ideas, with 20 ideas now being further explored by subject matter experts. Some of the ideas include:

  • targeted communications and messaging
  • screening techniques
  • telehealth
  • health information platforms
  • drone use for sanitation of large open spaces and
  • virtual observation kits for regional health.

The Hub is also connecting representatives from RAC WA, HBF, Australian Institute of Management WA, and data science experts from Curtin University together with teams from the City of Canning, the Department of Health, and Western Power to work collaboratively and provide support to help deliver results to the community.

To build a healthy and resilient Western Australia, we must all work together to harness the expertise of the community and put bright ideas in front of the right people.

‘Every day is an opportunity to learn how tomorrow’s better’

Keep the great ideas coming.
