The visitors were given a briefing session and a tour of the Innovation Campus before heading to the SMART Infrastructure Facility and the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute on the main campus. UOW Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Wellings was on hand to meet the representatives at the iC.

Opportunities and industry capabilities specific to the Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama, Shoalhaven and Wingecarribee regions were presented over lunch.
