The Queensland Government, through Advance Queensland, has worked with QUT to secure the bootcamp again for 2019.

The week includes lectures led by senior MIT lecturers focusing on innovation and entrepreneurship. The MIT Bootcamp will bring innovators from across the globe to focus on technology-enabled innovation in Queensland’s key sectors including agriculture, mining and environmental management.
