How and why build a new Health Innovation precinct?
In this week’s episode of ‘Research for What?’, I discuss with Lance Chia, Manager of the new Liverpool Health Innovation Precinct in Sydney’s South West. Lance shares his vision to develop a multibillion-dollar precinct that will drive outcomes and impact from innovation generated within the precinct.
A strength of the future precinct will be collaboration fostered between many local partners including the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research, Liverpool Hospital, Liverpool City Council, South Western Sydney Local Health District, local businesses and start-ups, schools and universities. Lance describes with pride and passion an extraordinary environment and shared facilities with engagement from researchers, clinicians, teachers, health care workers, entrepreneurs, business and government leaders and local students.
The Innovation Precinct is a visionary project with ambitious plans to bring extremely diverse skills and backgrounds to address local health challenges. Lance reflects on trust between collaborators and explains what he regards as world-class research, innovation and impact. This new precinct will bring endless opportunities, change the entire city of Liverpool (and beyond) and will be the framework for research to improve the community wellbeing.
