Welcome from Hon Cameron Dick

Minister for Economic Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning

Queensland is at the forefront of new ideas and innovation. The multi-billion dollar Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct will be a centre for learning, research and knowledge creation, powering commercialisation of newly developed technologies.

The Precinct will foster collaboration between businesses, universities and industry to diversify our economy and to take advantage of opportunities in the new knowledge sector.

Knowledge-based industry attraction and development is crucial to our long-term economic growth, offering strong career path options in the fields of technology and science.
It will provide a valuable skilled labour force to deliver quality frontline services to support our knowledge economy, now and for future generations.

Already, the Precinct is demonstrating emerging benefits for the city, region and state, showing that when it comes to health and knowledge innovation, Queensland is open for business.
