The Melbourne Biomedical Precinct is enormously important to Victoria. It has touched the lives of millions of people – whether it be through the world class clinical care its hospitals provide, the outstanding education its universities deliver or the world-renowned research of its institutions.
In the future the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct will be even more important. It will provide secure, well-paid jobs for generations of Victorians and help build economic growth for Victoria. It will be called upon to help address major new health challenges emerging in Australia and around the world.
To support this, the Precinct Partners have created a 20-year vision to position the Precinct as one of the top ten biomedical precincts in the world.
