Join CSIRO for CSIRO's first ever Solar Hackathon on Friday 8 April and Saturday 9 April 2016.
CLEAN technologies and smart city startup Eighteen04 has outgrown its digs at CSIRO and is poised to secure a multi-level office space in Newcastle West.
Eighteen04, a smart cities and clean tech co-working space for tech startups and scale-ups will be launched TODAY, December 16, at Foghorn Brewhouse, at 5.30pm.
Hosted at the CSIRO Energy Centre in Mayfield West, and with generous support from Newcastle City Council, five tech enterprises have taken up residence working across a range of areas including plug-and-play battery storage solutions, smart waste recycling, smart cities traffic management solutions and waste heat sourced electricity generation.
WELCOME to the first Eighteen04 newsletter. It is an exciting time for start-ups, an exciting time for the renewal of the City of Newcastle and an exciting time for Smart Cities and CleanTech in Australia. Eighteen04 has a vision to a part of the ecosystem that supports all of these activities and to provide a vibrant physical and cultural space to foster collaboration and networking for tech entrepreneurs.
Newcastle is well placed to benefit from new energy technologies, according to some of the region’s best innovators.
As the city’s council grapples with the thought of life after coal, many in Newcastle are already making things happen.
Key industry and community enablers have articulated a vision and plan for Newcastle and the broader region, to become a global leader in technology industries, supported by the local tech start-up ecosystem, known as #Newystartups.
In technology land, sometimes there's just so much noise it can be hard to be heard and it's easy to miss something in the offing.
It's no different in Newcastle's growing scene, but a shiny new platform hopes to change all that.
TECH-HEAD meetings were non-existent when the Newcastle Coders Group was formed 10 years ago.
Today there are many ‘‘geek meets’’ around – not that the Coders mind.
