Hugh Ong

Innovation Portfolio Lead

Hugh is passionate about applying innovative technologies and R&D processes to solve for big problems in sustainability and community. Before joining Food Agility CRC, Hugh led and seed-funded several projects that saw the accelerated adoption of emerging technology solutions within the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. Such projects have involved technologies such as AI and machine learning, blockchain, quantum computing, IoT, and others. With a deep understanding that technology and research alone is not a solution, Hugh also has a keen interest in strategy, business model innovation and agile project design – and works to bridge the gap between inventors and industry through the processes of innovation.
