Advance Queensland Initiative

We are backing Queenslanders by building our innovation economy to drive economic growth and create jobs in our regions.

Our Journey

Advance Queensland was launched in 2015 and is a significant investment by the Queensland Government to drive a more diversified Queensland economy, strengthen regional growth and create jobs. 

Advance Queensland has involved the delivery of more than 140 programs and activities supporting more than 31,500 jobs and leveraged $1 billion in funds from external partners and investors.

The latest Advance Queensland statistics can be found in our Advance Queensland Performance Reports

Advance Queensland is now ready to move to the next phase, capitalising on its successes and accelerating economic growth opportunities for Queensland in the lead-up to the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Our Future

The Advance Queensland – Innovation for a Future Economy: 2022–2032 Roadmap sets out the direction, key priority outcomes and initiatives for the next phase in Queensland’s innovation journey.

The Roadmap supports inclusivity and diversity and involves the contributions of all stakeholders across the innovation ecosystem including entrepreneurs, startups and scaleups, SMEs, innovators, universities, research and education and training institutes, investors, corporates, government and the community.

The Roadmap will continue to grow and reflect new innovation announcements and achievements from all parts of the ecosystem.

Queensland: it’s our time to shine!
