Flinders University City Campus, Victoria Square

With Dr Glen Walker, NCGRT / IAH 2017 Distinguished Lecturer. The climate shift in south-western Western Australia and the Millennium Drought has highlighted the need to better understand how water resources will be affected by changing climate across Australia.

Life in a smart city; University of Adelaide Research Tuesdays

University of Adelaide – Bragg Lecture Theatre

As the “Smart City” movement gathers pace worldwide, Adelaide is moving to the front of the pack. In fact, many experts believe we could be a global top five Smart City within a decade. But what, you may ask, does that actually mean for you? As founder of the Australian Smart Cities Consortium, the University of Adelaide is uniquely placed to shed light on this question; and in this fascinating forum, four of our leading Smart Cities researchers will do just that. Presenting perspectives from the fields of big data, public health, digital disruption, and architecture and urban design, these thought leaders will explain: the new ways of thinking reframing how we plan and design our communal and personal spaces; and how integrated “smart” technologies will increasingly be used to enhance your entire experience of living and working in them.
