The Digital CBD

This project is a combined RMIT initiative including the Blockchain Innovation Hub, the Centre for Cyber Security Research and Innovation and the Digital Ethnography Research Centre to conduct large scale research into the acceleration of digital technology directly impacted by Covid-19 and consequently, the opportunity areas for a digital CBD.

Project provides:

  • A strategic roadmap developed across the reports for cross-sector adjustments to the post-COVID digital environment including proposals for piloted use cases at the end of each themed report
  • Engagement with industry, government and society and development of public policy recommendations
  • A program of high-quality academic research building and evidence base and theoretical understandings to underpin the value and contribution of a Digital CBD initiative
  • Development of measures toward an index that focuses on the digital infrastructures, secure supply chains, cybersecurity capabilities and other relevant indicators such as policy and adoption/readiness in order to benchmark Melbourne, its regions and precincts, with its position in the global digital economy

This research has been funded by the Victorian Higher Education State Investment Fund (VHESIF). To learn more about other people involved, to read the reports and view other outputs, visit the main website at RMIT.
