New visualisation tool presents Queensland’s research strengths and capabilities in emerging industries

Posted 3 years ago

Queensland is home to cutting edge science and research. Did you know:

  • Queensland has more than 300 research centres, institutes, research hospitals and innovation precincts
  • Queensland’s world class scientists have created sensors used by NASA on the Mars Rover
  • Queensland is one of the most biodiverse places on earth, with an incredibly variable climate. As a result, the state has one of the best science systems in the world for managing the natural environment.
  • Two thirds of the world’s population live 8 hours away from Queensland, providing ready access to a global market for commercialisation.

Based upon the CSIRO New Smarts report and the Queensland Science Capability Directory, a new Strategic Visualisation Tool shows the strategic linkages between research organisations, innovation precincts and manufacturing hubs. It helps users understand Queensland’s research strengths and capabilities in seven emerging industries with global growth potential.

Impact Innovation supported the Office of the Queensland Chief Scientist in bringing together the presenters in the showcase video, developing an overview of key achievements and resources in each sector, and integrating the visualisation tool into a broader engagement strategy involving Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ).
