There is an opportunity to create an Innovation Precinct in the heart of Franklin. We must bring together community, Iwi, central government, big business, small to medium enterprises, universities, polytechnics and schools.
Our collective challenge is to understand what innovation looks like for Franklin, its organisations and its customers in 2042. And then ask ourselves the question, what if that's where we needed to be in 2025?
This is a model which could be implemented in all main centres around New Zealand, developing a sustainable, innovative economy and making us the number one most innovative economy in the world.
