Agmentation features on ABC's Landline

Watch here

ABC’s Landline program had a New England flavour last week, and our very own inaugural Agmentation got a special look in.

Agmentation is a concentrated hackathon-style event to put laser-like focus on what might be preventing the region’s farmers from reaching optimum performance.

Innovating with Cisco, the global leader in networking.

Agmentation – Just needs U.

Tech solutions for socially relevant Agribusiness ‘grassroots’ challenges.

UNE through SRI, in conjunction with CISCO, are working to strengthen our community and provide an opportunity to learn something new. Agmentation is a chance to meet new people with a vast set of skills and a fun way to make headway in addressing problems that affect regional people every day.

For our inaugural event, participants living within a 150 kilometre radius of Armidale were invited to commit a day to a structured process of innovation development, some healthy competition and a whole lot of fun.

The day started early with BBQ breakfast, and moved through proven principles of ideation and innovation development. The event closed with idea pitches to a panel of expert judges followed by a celebration dinner and prizes, under the stars on Kirby Farm.
