“There’s no doubt, smart tech will destroy some jobs, but it will create new jobs – jobs we can’t predict or imagine today. Smart tech supported by smart planning and policy will guarantee plenty of jobs, better working conditions, and the ability to share prosperity.” - Brook Dixon

Project Watch Wodonga Innovation Project (WIP)
Delos Delta is continuing our work with the Wodonga innovation community and Canberra Innovation Network (CBRIN) to establish a dedicated Innovation Network/Hub for Wodonga and region.
We are now developing online innovation content to build local innovation capacity and get people involved in the new network.
There is now a dedicated facebook page to stay connected with the WIP! Give it a follow and get the latest news about the youth innovation programs to come!
Delos Delta is proud to have worked with Council to help develop this Strategy and Implementation Plan.
"Strategy and planning shapes and guides what the project is, who it serves, what it does, and why it does it. It also clarifies the actions needed to make progress and includes clear measures to determine if it is successful."
The Strategy is a finalist for "Strategy and Planning Achievement of the Year", with winners announced in October later this year. Best of luck to Wyndham!
