The City of Melbourne is calling on innovators, entrepreneurs, students and community members to take part in Open Innovation Competition 2019 and find ways to improve safety for our city’s 920,000 daily visitors and residents.

Now in its second year, the Open Innovation Competition 2019 is designed to tap into the creativity and expertise of our community, and stimulate new ideas and effective solutions.

The theme for this year’s competition is ‘safe mobility’ and will focus on four opportunity areas:

  • public spaces
  • transportation
  • city disruption
  • the city at night time

Participants are encouraged to incorporate data and emerging technology into their solutions to address these common urban challenges.

Submissions for the Open Innovation Competition are open from Thursday 7 March to Thursday 18 April 2019.

The six-week program will culminate with a pitch night at Melbourne Knowledge Week in May.
