We are a Smart, Connected Brisbane. Our goal is to work with residents, businesses, universities and start-ups to explore how innovation, technology and data can help accelerate Brisbane’s progress towards achieving our broader city goals of liveability, sustainability and prosperity. This means we aren’t driven by the latest technology, but rather by what will deliver a better Brisbane for residents, visitors, workers and businesses.

Together, we’ve been delivering smart, connected projects for many years. But we know there’s more to be done and we will continue to explore how technology and innovation can help us deliver better services for our communities.
