The GCHKP is evolving to expand from its key partners and occupants to eventually generate $2.9 billion for the Gold Coast economy and support up to 26,000 jobs.
As a key legacy of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games is realised, the former Athletes Village has transformed into a vibrant mixed-use community.
Meanwhile three sites are already earmarked for developments to commence from 2020 and an exciting co-working and innovation space, COHORT, has opened to enliven the Precinct.
Griffith University’s new $80 million Advanced Design and Manufacturing Institute (ADaPT) will be a flagship innovation facility for the GCHKP, translating university research and technology, together with world-leading industry partners and collaborators, at the cutting-edge of additive manufacturing and new personalised medicine technology.
ADaPT will merge the university’s expertise in micro and nano-technology, new materials, biomechanical and biomedical engineering, big data and artificial/augmented intelligence, complex medical imaging and 3D printing design and technology, with the innovation of partner companies and clinicians to engineer next-generation medical and industrial applications.
IntelliHealthQueensland is a not for profit organisation committed to the establishment and support of an innovation environment/hub designed to promote research, investment, and commercialisation of next generation technologies within AI and machine learning, concentrated on the health sector.
IntelliHQ is a partnership between Gold Coast Health, industry and universities to disrupt and transform healthcare through AI, enhancing patient outcomes and improving quality of care, while maximising cost-effectiveness.
IntelliHQ co-locate startups, multi-national partners, researchers and a teaching academy, providing a national and international partnership program, advisor network and innovation ecosystem, including access to data.
With a particular focus on data in the intensive care (ICU) environment, IntelliHQ researchers are building a precision medicine data platform to improve diagnostic and therapeutic outcomes for critically ill patients, through an expanding collaboration of data scientists and clinicians.
Utilising unique buildings constructed for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, the Precinct’s co-working and incubation space will create an innovation heart, strategically located in the centre of the village.
With a high-quality fit-out incorporating the latest sustainability and technology standards and led by experienced co-working management, the facility will provide an exciting hub for start-ups, and incubating/co-locating companies as well as a vibrant venue for entrepreneurial education, partner activities and networking events.
Offering more than 2,000m2 GFA of internal space for offices, hot desks, meeting rooms and other facilities, the hub will also enliven the street with outdoor event spaces.
The co-working hub, to be open from early 2019, will foster disruptive collaboration, drive development and commercialisation, support entrepreneurial & start up growth and provide a landing platform for global companies seeking Asia Pacific hub location.
