As part of the University City of the Future, La Trobe is developing as a place for investment, jobs and infrastructure growth in Melbourne’s north.

We engage with industry, including partners in the corporate sector, government and not for profits, to provide opportunities for our students, translate our research for impact and create opportunities to deliver value. We look to create value for all involved as we strive to be a partner of choice.

We are building on our research strengths in Agriculture, Food & Environment, Health & Wellbeing and Digital Transformation and integrate cross-disciplinary research and teaching to attract industry partners and high potential start-ups to co-locate on our Research and Innovation Precinct.

La Trobe already has a range of partners from start-ups including:
