Queensland’s post-COVID economic recovery and transformation depends on being ready for new economic opportunities. In a time of significant change and disruption, the state has an opportunity to harness its strengths in science and technology to position itself ahead of the curve.
This report was developed by CSIRO and the Queensland University of Technology’s Centre for Future Enterprise and commissioned by the Queensland Department of Environment and Science. It identifies a set of nine emerging, knowledge-driven seed industries that have the potential to generate sizeable economic, social and environmental benefits if supportive ecosystems can be established for them.
While this is not an exhaustive list, this work serves as a starting point for future industry development discussions across government, industry and academia.
Through this work, a set of nine emerging, knowledge-driven seed industries have been identified as having potential for strong, sustained jobs growth, if supportive ecosystems can be established for them.
They should not necessarily be viewed as the only opportunities or the best opportunities for Queensland, but as additional options for policy-makers to consider.
Each of the nine seed industries presented in this report is defined using a holistic approach that considers the social, economic and environmental benefits and costs, to support innovation and entrepreneurship, investment and job creation opportunities and overall economic outputs and exports for Queensland.
