Advance Queensland is our vision for the future and our investment in a stronger Queensland economy. Funding of $650 million is supporting programs that drive innovation, build on our natural advantages, and help raise our profile as an attractive investment destination.

  • We are supporting jobs by encouraging innovation and collaboration in industry.
  • We are turning ideas into action by investing in research and technologies, attracting new investment, building global partnerships and encouraging businesses to start and grow in Queensland.
  • We are making lives better by delivering world leading health and environmental protection outcomes and building connected communities.
  • We are working together to tackle today’s challenges and grasp tomorrow’s opportunities by diversifying the economy and giving our children the skills and education they need to succeed.

Discover new solutions to improve everyday lives through programs to foster current and future talent and enable researchers and industry to solve global challenges here in Queensland.
