IoT Waikato June Meetup

This event is run in partnership with Internet of Things, Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts, Smart Cities Council, Wintec, Techwomen, and New Zealand IoT Alliance.

This is an opportunity to get together to share and find out what is happening in this space around the Waikato, NZ, and globally, including opportunities and challenges.

IoT Waikato is brought to you by Smart Cities Council Australia New Zealand (SCCANZ) in collaboration with Wintec, and supported by NZ IoT Alliance and TechWomen NZ

The June meetup is hosted by the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Waikato and will also include an opportunity to meet and talk with upcoming graduates from the University of Waikato and the Centre for IT at Wintec.

Plus an opportunity for 2 min elevator pitches from the audience if you have something to share around how you can help someone or if you need help with an IoT, Smart Cities or Industry 4.0 related initiative.


Anita Kurei-Paruru (Whakatōhea Māori Trust Board) and Annika Hinze (University of Waikato)

Using a co-design approach, the Whakatōhea Māori Trust Board created a Waiata App together with staff from the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Waikato. Anita and Annika will take us through the design and development journey, sharing with you the challenges and success, as well as recommendations to kick-start such collaborative projects. The chosen development process enabled the Iwi to keep control over their cultural data, and to drive the project according to their needs.

Amelia Burnett (Clementine Consulting)

Amelia is a strategic communications, change and engagement specialist who has held leadership positions with infrastructure transformation programmes, including the UK’s National Digital Twin programmeConstruction Innovation Hub and the Centre for Digital Built Britain. In her presentation, Amelia will reflect on the UK’s progress driving the digital transformation of its construction and infrastructure sectors, and share insights that can be applied in a New Zealand context.

Speaker three to be announced

Plus we will have an update on the work of the Smart Cities Council ANZ including around the Digital Twin Hub as part of the Centre for Data Leadership, and our Future of Place initiative.
