Our difference

An industry-led initiative, Macquarie Park Innovation District was created in 2015 when seven key founding partners joined forces to leverage the massive innovation and collaboration potential of Macquarie Park. The partners – AMP Capital, NAB, Optus, Abbott, Johnson & Johnson, Konica Minolta and Macquarie University – sought to improve the physical and economic assets that underpin innovation, as well as develop an events program that will bring park members and the community together.

The next phase in Macquarie Park Innovation District’s development is to expand participation to include all businesses in the park.
