The theme for the 2019 Open Innovation Competition was 'safe mobility'. We asked the community to find ways to improve safety for our city’s 920,000 daily visitors and residents.

The competition focused on four opportunity areas:

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

The 2019 competition wanted to make sure that the people and places of Melbourne foster safe mobility and better address the needs of all our residents, workers and visitors who travel through the city. Emerging technologies are helping people on their journey through the city, but more can be done to make Melbourne – and cities generally – safer to navigate.
