Check out the home of the HWA LAB: Adelaide’s Future-Focused West End

A space for new ideas, a hub for innovative thinkers and a futuristic museum.

Hybrid World Adelaide’s exciting HWA LAB returns from 20 – 21 July to a new home in the University of South Australia’s Innovation and Collaboration Centre (ICC). In this corner of Adelaide’s west end, you’ll find emerging entrepreneurs alongside established leaders focused on exploring technology, art and science.


Bright minds hoping to bring their tech-related idea to life will participate in the LAB from 20 – 21 July, where they’ll learn from world-class mentors, network with start-ups and entrepreneurs from around the world, and have the chance to win a share in $85,000 of SA Government grants. Finalists will pitch at the Tech Conference.

2. The Innovation & Collaboration Centre

The aim of the ICC is to support technology-based idea generation and growth for students, start-ups and entrepreneurs alike. The facilities on offer include co-working areas, hot desks, a seminar area and meeting rooms. We bet there’s more than a handful of interesting ideas under the ICC’s roof!

3. MOD.

Adelaide’s newest museum is worth a visit for anyone interested in the future. You can walk through a tunnel of light, talk to an animatronic head and watch artworks come to life using AR. Entry is free to its six galleries that explore where art, science and innovation meet. Read more about our visit to MOD.
