Crafting Australian Innovation Precincts: Leadership, Strategy, and Place Making

Professor Richard Hu

Learn from Urban Planner and author of ‘Crafting Innovative Places for Australia’s Knowledge Economy’, Richard Hu, on how government and the private sector can work together to co-create the next generation of innovative places. Establish strategic techniques, explore international best-practice and develop the tools you need to take a leadership role when crafting new and unique communities and centres.


The Australian Government released Statement of Principles for Australian Innovation Precincts in October 2018 to pursue ‘place-based innovation’ and to encourage ‘bottom-up leadership’ to drive precinct development. This Master Class is timely to develop best practice leadership, strategy and place making into an art of ‘crafting Australian innovation precinct’.

The learning outcomes for this course are:

  • To have a comprehensive understanding of international best practices of innovation precincts;
  • To have an in-depth understanding of Australian leading innovation precincts, and how they perform in an international comparative context;
  • To develop a suite of ‘crafting’ approaches and tools in terms of leadership, strategy, and place making for Australian innovation precincts.

Every participant will receive a free copy of our book Crafting Innovative Places for Australia’s Knowledge Economy.

Cost: $1,200.00 + GST

(Includes lunch, morning and afternoon tea)

Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm
