Research and Innovation Expo

The Geelong Region is on the move and its educational and research organisations are leading the way. It’s the strength provided by working together cohesively through the Smart Geelong Network that enables Geelong to be a leader.

Geelong is committed to excellence. While Geelong has enjoyed prosperity and growth in manufacturing and agriculture during its 150 years, the region is now excelling in the areas of education, technology and research.

Smart Geelong Network is undertaking it’s 9th Annual Research & Learning Expo in November 2013 to showcase research and learning initiatives being undertaken in the Geelong region.
