Building Queensland innovation - region by region

The Queensland Government is working with educators, business, industry and government across the state to help shape the way we ignite and grow innovation, build economies and support job development in rural and regional Queensland.

The Advancing Regional Innovation program, under the government’s Advance Queensland initiative, will support innovation by connecting local people and organisations, leveraging off the unique strengths of each of our regions and helping innovative local businesses to grow.

Recently, the Queensland Government consulted with regional communities to help shape the design of the program, using local people to develop local and regionally-focused solutions.

Looking forward, the program aims to fund collaboration projects that will support and build thriving regional ecosystems, including small-to-medium enterprises and technology startups.
