Our precinct partners

The Research and Innovation Precinct brings entrepreneurs, industry, academics, educators and community together to create the increasingly critical melting pot of business, industry and research that we need to solve the world’s biggest and most difficult problems.

The Precinct ecosystem empowers innovators and emerging companies all the way from concept through to commercialisation, scale-up and acceleration – and has already helped partner companies raise $30 million with joint investment from government and industry, and co-developed IP.
