Health and Knowledge
The Queensland Government has established the Advance Queensland initiative to help grow a strong innovation and entrepreneurial culture in Queensland. Advance Queensland is a program designed to support Queensland in delivering today the long-term jobs for tomorrow.
Queensland is emerging as the gateway to the Asia-Pacific region with several global companies in the health and knowledge sectors establishing partnerships and operations in the state. This combines with a strong eco-system across Queensland that provides for interconnectivity and collaboration with leading medical facilities and universities.
The establishment of the new Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct (GCHKP) on Queensland’s Gold Coast is a unique global business location for industry development and research collaboration, and provides an exciting opportunity for investors in this growing field.
Supported by $5 billion in infrastructure, including a world-class university, one of Queensland's major public hospitals and a new private hospital, the precinct hosts the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018 Athletes Village. After the Games this will be transformed into a vibrant community to live, work and learn.
GCHKP will be a one-stop shop for world-class biomedical and health technology, research and facilities.
