Innovation for a Future Economy: 2022-2032 Roadmap

Queensland is a bright star of innovation, and now is our time to shine even more.

Innovation is critical for driving a return to growth for Queensland’s economy and jobs.

That is why it’s important for innovation to be at the heart of everything Queensland does and delivers, particularly as a lead-up to the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Advance Queensland initiative has laid the foundation for innovation to happen in Queensland. It has supported the creation, scale up and international success of many Queensland researchers, innovators and businesses.

Now is the time to build on this success and further accelerate Queensland’s future economy and jobs growth through innovation.

The Innovation for a Future Economy 2022-2032 Roadmap is for everyone in Queensland’s innovation ecosystem. It will help drive a strong, resilient and inclusive Queensland economy.

Vision

For Queensland to become a leading and sustainable world-class innovation economy.

To fulfil this vision, Advance Queensland have set out six priority outcomes and the objectives critical to achieving each outcome.


Six priorities

  • Capital Attraction: This is important for early startups to get off the ground and for more mature companies with good products and services to scale up.
  • Research Collaboration and Commercialisation: Improving research-business collaboration and increasing expenditure on research and development and commercialisation outcomes are important for a thriving innovation economy.
  • Talent, Skills and New Technologies: Innovation is critical to growing Queensland's key priority industries and a high growth economy.
  • Innovative and Sustainable Solutions: Queensland's startups and small and medium sized enterprises can help Government address big challenges through innovative sustainable solutions and can provide support for major events such as Brisbane 2032.
  • 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.
  • Connected and Inclusive Innovation Ecosystem: Inclusivity and diversity are critical for building a sustainable Queensland innovation ecosystem. This requires targeted support for our regional, female and First Nations innovators.
