Today The Duke of York attended a defence roundtable before heading to the Innovation, Incubator, Start-up and Growth Hub at Lot 14 — the old Royal Adelaide Hospital site.
Lot Fourteen is transforming into a contemporary global innovation neighbourhood, creating high-value jobs and industries to help secure South Australia’s future and to position Adelaide as the start-up capital of Australia.
During the visit, HRH met with a handful of start-ups using the new space, including Myriota, a low-cost satellite and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity provider that has solved the remote IoTconnectivity challenge. Myriota participated in last year’s [email protected] Australia 1.0.
Later that day The Duke visited the University of South Australia and had a briefing and tour of the University’s Cancer Research Laboratories.
Afterwards, HRH visited the University’s Museum of Discovery (MOD) Waging Peace exhibition, which explores how we might pursue peace through collaboration or control. The Duke opened the new exhibition, the second in this space, before moving on to a tour of the Business School and Training School.
