Project update - February
 

As we welcome in 2017, some of the Ginninderra project team have been enjoying a holiday break while others are working hard to define how CSIRO science can be applied to transform the site. CSIRO has a wealth of science knowledge, data, technology and innovation that it can contribute to the ‘whole-of-system’ solutions that are needed. CSIRO and Citizen-led science is already underway at Ginninderra and community inspired innovation could also help drive a wide range of outcomes including the prospect of a greater range of affordable housing options.

Lift off for CSIRO's first Urban Living Lab

CSIRO’s first Urban Living Lab designed to innovate, develop and roadtest the cities of the future was launched at the Sydney Science Park site on 2 Feb 2017. A joint initiative of CSIRO and Celestino, the Urban Living Lab provides a space in which to nurture innovation and collaboration, to apply science and test new ideas and technologies for their potential to deliver more liveable, sustainable and resilient cities and urban areas.

CSIRO Urban Living Labs are proposed to be established in a number of different urban, inner city and greenfields settings in a number of Australian cities and the CSIRO Ginninderra property is anticipated to be one of those locations.

Water sensitive design through international collaboration

Ginninderra is proposed to become a test-bed for the latest innovation in water sensitive urban design and infrastructure through an international collaboration between CSIRO and the Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology.
Using science to transform greenfields and cities

Over the past few years one question that has come up is: ‘why would a national science and innovation agency like CSIRO be involved in what appears to be a greenfield development at Ginninderra on the outskirts of Canberra?’ It’s not a difficult question to answer when you consider what CSIRO is, what it has done in the past and what it is planning to do in the future.
