New Morwell 'Hi-Tech Precinct' has been confirmed for the Latrobe Valley

The Latrobe Valley will be home to a new Hi-Tech Precinct, bringing together the new Morwell Tech School with Federation University, Federation Training, private tenants, and leading global technology brand Fujitsu.

The technology centre will be constructed on the Federation Training site in Morwell and will position the Latrobe Valley as a hub of technology, education and innovation.

The Precinct will create more than 80 jobs during its development, and hundreds of local ongoing employment opportunities.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Fujitsu, the Victorian Government, Federation Training and Federation University has been signed to guide the project.

Fujitsu will look to establish a service centre operation and will help drive the ‘open innovation laboratory,’ where Gippsland’s research, business and education communities can access Fujitsu’s computing and data analytics capabilities – the first time this ground breaking approach has been implemented in Australia.
