Event Details
UDIA NSW is excited to invite you to our City Life Labs Round Two Pitch Event to help select the next technology focused projects to enable the smart planning for the development of our future cities.

The best two project ideas will each be awarded with a $50,000 R&D grant to help develop their projects collaboratively with UDIA NSW, with the objective to help make our cities more Liveable, Affordable and Connected.

Eight finalists will present their research project proposals in a Pecha Kucha format (20 slides on a timer for 20 seconds each). Our on-stage judges will each provide a score out of ten. As an audience member, you will also have an opportunity to vote via your smartphone. The two highest scoring projects will be declared the winners at the conclusion of the Pitch Event.

Join us for networking drinks and canapés following the event to celebrate our round two winners.
