The statement has four principles, which emphasise the importance of:
- local leadership in innovation precinct development
- removal of barriers to align policy
- building up capability and connections
- coordinating skills development within innovation precincts
Stocktakes of Australian innovation precincts and supportive government programs supplement the Statement.
We would like to thank the University Precincts Advisory Committee for its work throughout 2017, and stakeholders that provided input. The Statement of Principles for Australian Innovation Precincts reflects this work and input.
