The Telstra Innovation Challenge is an IoT hackathon started in 2017. Now in our third year, we are looking forward to another successful challenge.

The 2019 Telstra Innovation Challenge has two separate streams;

  • University, open only to current University students
  • Public, open to all interested participants able to attend the Telstra Labs in Melbourne for the week of the challenge (25th May – 1st Jun).

We will ask Challenge participants in each stream to use technology to find innovative solutions to issues in the transport and logistics sector. Both streams will then come together for a joint pitch, demonstration and awards event in Melbourne at the conclusion of the challenge on 1 June 2019.
