Innovation Tour – October 2019

Off the back of the final visit to Adelaide by Thinkers in Residence Dr Allyson Hewitt and Dr Ilse Treurnicht and in conjunction with the Don Dunstan Foundation, we’re thrilled to present an updated itinerary for our innovation tour to the US and Canada from 12 to 27 October 2019.

As South Australia establishes its reputation as a centre for innovation, this tour will give government, private enterprises, universities and others the opportunity to explore the ecosystems, programs and initiatives that are supporting entrepreneurs and making innovation precincts thrive in the US and Canada.

The tour includes two options, taking in:

  • Option A:            New York, Toronto and the 70th International Astronautical Congress in Washington DC
  • Option B:             New York, Toronto, Washington DC and Austin

Both tours include visits to the MaRS Discovery District, including meetings with our Thinkers in Residence. We are keen to ensure the ideas gained while on the tour can be implemented, advocated for or explored in more detail for the benefit of our entire city once we’ve returned. To this end, we want to ensure a good mix of participants.
