The VPA has activated its business continuity plan in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We are working remotely and this may cause some disruptions to our work program. We are working hard to limit any impacts but some unavoidable delays and postponements will occur.

What is a National Employment and Innovation Cluster?

National Employment and Innovation Clusters (the clusters) are areas with concentrations of businesses and institutions that provide a diversity of employment opportunities, including knowledge-based jobs.

The Victorian Government’s strategic planning document, Plan Melbourne 2017-2050, has identified seven National Employment and Innovation Clusters. The clusters are located in areas that have specialised activities, typically centred around major universities and teaching hospitals. They make a significant contribution to innovation and the national economy and have the capacity to further enhance Melbourne’s competitive position within the global economy.
