A working city
A place to work together
A place where relationships are forged between young entrepreneurs, mentors, supporters and funders. Co-locating and collaborating with industry and partners will be the norm.
Our University City will have an undeniable power in numbers. Businesses of all sizes, from established global companies to disruptive start-ups, will form a new industry hub for the north. This will be an inspiring place to work, where new collaborations and connections enable real business growth.
We will create a world-class setting by becoming a ‘living laboratory’: co-locating and collaborating with industry and partners who will develop, test and adopt new technologies.
We will drive job growth with a focus on core industry sectors in which La Trobe demonstrates existing world-class research and innovation: Agriculture, Food and Environment; Health and Wellbeing; Digital Technology and Transformation.
Our research and innovation precinct will promote the study, research, development and communication of ideas to solve real-world regional and global challenges, and industry, government, academics and students alike will profit from being at the forefront of leading research and educational excellence across existing and emerging industries.
We will work closely with sector-leading partners to co-develop and co-deliver new subjects, courses and programs which directly address workforce needs. Our plans also include brokering relationships between industry, entrepreneurs and government to help foster a culture of collaboration.
Thank you for you feedback! Your ideas will help transform La Trobe into a true City of the Future
Our University City of the Future journey is taking its next step with a refresh of the campus master plan, which will set out how the campus might grow and develop in the future.
From June to September 2022, we reached out to our local community, staff and students, to find out what they like about our campus, the different spaces and facilities they use, and how we can improve the campus to benefit the wider community.
You can read a summary of this feedback, which is helping us develop an updated master plan that will set out how the campus can grow to achieve our vision.
We are on our way to becoming a University City of the Future.
