Science precincts are helping to build some of the largest and most significant research centres, institutes and precincts in the Southern Hemisphere. The investment is positioning Queensland as an Australasian centre of excellence for science and technology.
Examples include the Queensland Biosciences Precinct at St Lucia, the Creative Industries Precinct at Kelvin Grove, the Ecosciences Precinct at Boggo Road, the Health and Food Sciences Precinct at Coopers Plains and the Translational Research Institute.
Queensland's reputation for research excellence has been assisted by the Australian Government's multi-million dollar investment into research infrastructure and collaborations through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).
This critical mass of research has major benefits for people the world over and provides significant new opportunities for collaborations between the research sector and industry.
