SGS Seminar Melbourne - Creating innovation precincts that work

Innovation precincts are a key priority for all tiers of government due to their role in driving economic and urban development. Given their positioning as focal points for jobs, services, investment and innovation, their importance is expected to increase as our cities continue to grow. However, experience to date shows that even when we plan to co-locate education, health and/or research institutions, the synergies between these institutions, related private enterprise and the workers that they collectively accommodate, aren’t easily realised.

At our recent SGS Seminar series in Melbourne, our guest panel discussed the ingredients for successful innovation precincts, including the need for infrastructure, programmatic and behavioural interventions, and carefully designed governance arrangements.
