Innovate Queensland collaboration activities bring people together to generate ideas and solve industry-specific problems.

Collaboration Activities


Innovate Queensland’s collaboration activities bring people together to generate ideas and solve industry-specific problems.


  • Industry Innovation Challenge Events – workshops designed to bring innovative thinkers together to generate ideas for solving industry-specific and/or regional-specific challenges. These may be invitation-only events or open to the public.
  • Collaboration Connectors – structured networking events to help you connect with the people and resources you need to take your ideas further.

Collaboration Activities


Opportunities to meet and work with the potential innovation partners and commercial collaborators who can take your ideas further.



Do you want to:

  • Connect with people facing similar innovation challenges?
  • Learn how innovators and entrepreneurs who have travelled similar innovation and commercialisation journeys avoided the pitfalls or climbed out of them?
  • Work with innovative thinkers to generate ideas for solving industry- or region-specific challenges?
  • Attend networking events that offer more than refreshments, the same old faces and a handful of other people’s business cards?

Innovate Queensland collaboration activities connect you with the people who want to help for mutual benefit, not sell to you for personal gain.

More Information

Industry Innovation Challenges: These problem-solving workshops focus on a challenge or group of challenges facing a particular region or industry; e.g., partnering with a Regional Development Association to explore how a circular economy might solve industrial waste problems in that region.

Collaboration Connectors: These structured networking events are held at various venues across Queensland and connect local businesses with opportunities (local and beyond) for collaborative innovation, e.g. with university research teams, facilities and resources, or a breakfast where local innovative enterprises share their stories with presentations and a Q&A panel.
