Queensland has world-class innovation infrastructure to drive ideas through to commercialisation, adoption and diffusion

Priority outcome 5 — Queensland has world-class innovation infrastructure to drive ideas through to commercialisation, adoption and diffusion

Our priority is innovation precincts and places. We need to develop our innovation precincts and places across Queensland so that researchers, innovators and businesses can collaborate and turn ideas into innovative products and services. Queensland’s statewide network of innovation hubs play an important role in growing our regional innovation economy.

Our objectives are to:

  • Position Queensland precincts, places and hubs to reach their full potential for attracting investment and creating jobs.
  • Co-locate innovation precincts and places with research, education and training institutes.
  • Improve digital infrastructure accessibility.
