Innovation for a Future Economy

Queensland is a bright star of innovation, and now is our time to shine even more.

Innovation is critical for driving a return to growth for Queensland’s economy and jobs.

That is why it’s important for innovation to be at the heart of everything Queensland does and delivers, particularly as a lead-up to the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Advance Queensland initiative has laid the foundation for innovation to happen in Queensland. It has supported the creation, scale up and international success of many Queensland researchers, innovators and businesses.

Now is the time to build on this success and further accelerate Queensland’s future economy and jobs growth through innovation.

The Innovation for a Future Economy 2022-2032 Roadmap is for everyone in Queensland’s innovation ecosystem. It will help drive a strong, resilient and inclusive Queensland economy.
