Parkville National Employment and Innovation Cluster
The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is working closely with state and local government partners and other key stakeholders to progress planning for Parkville. Parkville is a designated Priority Precinct and National Employment and Innovation Cluster.
Parkville is recognised globally as a leading biomedical and research precinct and is walking distance from Melbourne’s central business district.
The convergence of biomedical research institutions, global biomedical industry leaders, hospitals and universities makes Parkville Australia’s premier applied research precinct.
Technology and life science skills in neighbouring Arden will complement Parkville’s offerings and provide the precinct and industry with room to grow.
Planning for Parkville will be done in conjunction with the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR) and will set clear objectives for the precinct’s future.
