Hitachi has entered an agreement with The Hon Gladys Berejiklian, Premier of New South Wales ("NSW") that Hitachi and the NSW government will establish the "Kyōsō Centre (collaborative creation centre)", within the Western City & Aerotropolis: a 22nd century smart city being built around the new Western Sydney International Airport.

The Kyōsō Centre will be built within the smart city, promoting collaborative creation with customers, partners and research institutions around the world.

A variety of platforms across IT, OT (Operational Technology) and product knowledge and technology that Hitachi has accumulated over many years will be available to all participants. This will form a platform for the efficient creation of ideas, prototyping, and demonstrations with various stakeholders, thereby accelerating the creation of social innovation solutions for Western Sydney and contributing to a human-centric smart city, utilising open data to improve the QoL of people in the Western Parkland City.
