AgTech hubs are emerging across Queensland and are collaborative spaces for researchers, producers and technology developers. These hubs act as the embryos for new ideas. Like-minded innovators and agripreneurs will assess field trials for new technologies or processes to ensure they are useful and effective across agribusinesses. The hubs offer networking opportunities to support your business along its AgTech journey.
Hubs in Queensland include:
- Bundaberg Hinkler AgTech Precinct CQUniversity
- Toowoomba AgTech and Logistics Hub
- The AgFrontier Regional Incubator
- Regional Manufacturing Hubs in Cairns, Townsville and Rockhampton
- FNQ Food Incubator
AgTech clusters connect our Queensland innovators. By joining one of these clusters you can connect with a network of potential collaborators and innovators. Clusters are practical space for agripreneurs to interact, be inspired, share resources and expertise, and exchange experiences. Local AgTech clusters include:
