The Advance Queensland Expert Panel was an advisory body that brought together successful leaders from across the business, academic, research and education sectors to provide broad-based expertise and independent advice to government in the implementation of the Advance Queensland initiative. Membership of the AQ Expert Panel expired on 31 March 2019.
The AQ Expert Panel was instrumental in the development of the draft Building Our Innovation Economy – Advance Queensland Strategy. The draft strategy was released for public consultation in April 2019 and is currently being finalised.
The strategy includes a proposal to establish a new advisory body, the Advance Queensland Economic Council, to provide independent advice and recommendations to government on the delivery of the strategy and champion innovation across Queensland. The AQ Economic Council will be chaired by the Premier and bring together key Ministers with innovation leaders from across Queensland.
Further details regarding the AQ Economic Council will be available following the finalisation of the strategy.
