Health Investment

The Queensland Government's $650 million Accelerating Advance Queensland initiative includes support for entrepreneurs and startups, investors, small business, industry and researchers ready to invest or to take their innovations to market.

Queensland Health is working closely with the Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning (DSDMIP), Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ) and the Department of Environment and Science (DES) to promote growth in the health and life sciences sector, attract investment and drive exports that contribute to creating jobs and improving the health of Queenslanders.

This includes working with DSDMIP on the development of the Biomedical and Life Sciences 10-year Roadmap (the Roadmap) to guide growth in the sector. 

The Queensland Government supports the Medical Research Commercialisation Fund (MRCF), which provides seed funding and venture capital to support the commercialisation of early-stage medical research discoveries that originate from its members, which include medical research institutes and affiliated hospitals. The collaborative nature of the MRCF seeks to foster best practice in the commercialisation of medical innovations.
