Queensland Innovation Places Strategy - Discussion Paper

Have your say on how government, industry and the community can work together to grow and develop Queensland’s innovation places.

Innovation places are critical to bring government, research and industry closer together, to attract talent and capital and to deliver new business, new jobs and export opportunities.

Queensland is uniquely positioned to build on our past efforts and harness our existing strengths. By capitalising on emerging and future opportunities, we can accelerate and grow our innovation places to create new economy jobs and economic recovery opportunities.

As part of Queensland’s Economic Recovery, the government is looking for opportunities to grow our state’s innovation places.

We want to build and enhance opportunities and partnerships across industry, businesses, universities, startups, investors and other stakeholders.

We want to encourage coordinated and collaborative partnerships and approaches to growing our innovation ecosystem and places, and with them, the new jobs and businesses that will secure our economic recovery, future resilience and growth.

Our vision

Our vision is to create:

A highly connected, engaged and collaborative system of innovation places, that brings together our economic strengths, assets and people to generate world-leading products, services, and businesses that deliver long-term economic growth and jobs for Queensland.

To support this vision, Advance Queensland are leading the development of the 10-year Queensland Innovation Places Strategy. We know our innovation places provide significant opportunity now and even greater potential for the future, but how do we get there?

To help inform the strategy, we are inviting stakeholder consultation on the Innovation Places discussion paper. We want to hear from you about the issues and opportunities to grow our innovation places, to discover what our shared vision and aspirations could be, and importantly, to identify how we might work together to deliver that vision.
