ACS Technology and Innovation Hubs

As a national body, we recognise that we have an important role to perform in the national interest. 

In relation to COVID-19, we see there are two important areas where we feel we can contribute:

1.) Limit the potential for the virus to spread so that the most vulnerable in our communities have the best access to Australia’s world leading health system.

2.) Support small to medium businesses with advice that optimises working from home arrangements across all industries to minimise contagion and protect Australian jobs.

In relation to the first point, until 2nd November 2020 :

  • ACS Victoria technology & innovation lab is closed to all staff and visitors including Bay City Labs. ACS Sydney technology and innovation hub is closed for members and visitors.
  • Our Labs in Sydney and Brisbane are open for residents and staff but not visitors

We want to do our part to ensure the current Australian COVID-19 trend flattens, and so support our frontline health services with the space and time needed to best care for those most in need. We thank you for your understanding.

ACS is proud to offer its members three unique Innovation Hubs that are exclusively available for ACS members to use when they are in the heart of Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. The three state-of-the-art facilities offer members a fully digitally enabled place where ICT professionals can come together to collaborate, innovate, create and demonstrate new products.

The Sydney Technology and Innovation Hub was officially opened on 12 April, 2018 by Federal Treasurer, the Hon. Scott Morrison MP, in the heart of Barangaroo. Housed in what is touted to be the best commercial building in Sydney, International Tower One is a 6-star Green Star-rated building. When using the Hub’s facilities, you will be contributing to an eco-friendly environment. International Towers is targeting carbon neutral status by diverting 80% of its operational waste from landfill, sending net zero waste to landfill by 2020 and recycling its water for reuse. ACS is proud to be an active supporter of these goals.

The Brisbane Technology and Innovation Hub sits within River City Labs, that became part of the ACS community in September 2018. Located on Brunswick Street, at the heart of Fortitude Valley Precinct, RCL empowers innovation by investing in the growth of the startup ecosystem. The space fosters collaboration by supporting key partnerships between entrepreneurs and industry leaders who are passionate about tackling new and exciting challenges.

The Melbourne Technology and  Innovation Hub was officially opened on 25 July, 2019 by the Hon. Jane Garrett MP, Victoria’s Parliamentary Secretary for Jobs. It is a modern, digitally enabled facility that houses the ACS VIC branch and is a key driver of partnerships for Victoria’s growing ICT community. Located at 839 Collins Street, the Melbourne Hub uses only natural cleaning products and hand soaps proudly supplied by an indigenous supplier. The space has sweeping views of the Yarra River and has a premium rooftop access with excellent public transport connectivity that captures the spirit of innovative ideas coming to life.

Our new space is open weekdays, excluding public holidays, to ACS members from 8.30am to 5pm.
