Chris Rowlands is Innovation Officer for the City of Greater Bendigo.

Chris is driving the innovation agenda at the City of Greater Bendigo with a view to how Bendigo can become a City of the Future.  One of Chris’ award-winning initiatives is called Clever Weather, where the City of Greater Bendigo has teamed up with La Trobe University to install 100 weather sensors throughout the city, including outer suburbs.  These sensors are highly responsive and provide more accurate readings of temperatures in different parts of Bendigo where temperatures can vary significantly.
