Industry and research precincts facilitate innovation by bringing together the very best minds. They are places where researchers, entrepreneurs, experts and students mix with leading industry partners. Places where people from different institutions can share ideas, and where our students gain practical skills. And they are places where investors can identify and support the path to commercialisation.
Each precinct is purpose-built with the latest technology and facilities. This means that together we can fast-track your research to bring new innovations to market. Or develop creative solutions to local and global challenges.
