About the Innovation Partnerships
The Advance Queensland Innovation Partnerships program supports research organisations to undertake collaborative research projects with end-users (industry, small to medium size enterprises, public sector and non-government organisations) that address an industry or end-user issue, within the parameters of the Queensland Science and Research Priorities and the Advance Queensland Roadmaps. Investment in these targeted areas will build a foundation for Queensland to develop as a global innovation hub and gateway into markets in the Asia Pacific and beyond.
