Health of Queensland Science and Innovation 2016

The third report in the Health of Queensland Science series, the Health of Queensland Science and Innovation 2016 (PDF, 9.3 MB) highlights Queensland’s science strengths and innovation opportunities.

The report found that while much has been achieved – great research and development, exciting and promising collaborations, and innovative companies – we can’t afford to be complacent. 

The report emphasised a need for:

  • producing more STEM-qualified Queenslanders to help fill the knowledge-based jobs of the future
  • encouraging our researchers and industry colleagues to develop productive and lasting relationships to help increase innovation and research translation
  • strengthening startup formation outside south-east Queensland to deliver benefits for the regions.
