Gilchrist’s 3rd tour consolidates partnership as brand ambassador for Wollongong University

MUMBAI: Former Australian cricketer Adam Gilchrist returned to India for his third ‘tour‘ as a brand ambassador for the University of Wollongong (UOW) and its Innovation Campus (iC), a research and commercial precinct that gives resident companies the opportunity to tap into the University’s research institutes and its highly regarded graduates.

Gilchrist visited several cities including Hyderabad, Bangalore and Mumbai to promote iC as an investment destination for Indian IT firms.
In Bangalore, he along with UOW and New South Wales State Government representatives announced that it will open an IT development and delivery centre at the Innovation Campus.

The announcement is the result of contacts built up during two previous visits to India by Gilchrist and senior UOW managers.

Gilchrist says, “It is really exciting to be back in India, and to be announcing that a major Indian IT company is establishing an Australian presence in Wollongong at the Innovation Campus”.
UOW corporate affairs director Craig Peden said that the past two visits had generated considerable interest among Indian companies, who were impressed by the opportunities available at the Innovation Campus.

Peden adds that UOW and the Innovation Campus had a lot to offer Indian IT companies looking to establish a presence in Australia and the Pacific.
“To succeed in the Australian market, firms need local knowledge, expertise and contacts. UOW can provide that because it has one of the largest IT Faculties in Australia – with great strength in its research as well as quality graduates" he says.
