The Operations Team are supported by a community of enthusiastic designers, facilitators, problem-solvers, thinkers and do-ers on a challenge-by-challenge basis.
The Lab is also supported by a local group we call ‘the circle of influencers’. These Brisbane-based community and business leaders help to connect the programming of the lab into the wider world of innovation – whether connecting us to a team who have solved a similar challenge in another city; highlighting relevant research programs; or connecting us to other businesses, large and small, established and start-up, who are keen to contribute to solving the complex challenges of the city.
