The Liverpool Health, Education, Research and Innovation Precinct

The Liverpool Health, Education, Research and Innovation Precinct has the capacity to transform both how our city functions and the perceptions of Liverpool and the broader South West Sydney region. Already a major employer, the precinct can become even more important as a job generator, building on the connections between some significant institutions.

Lucy Turnbull, AO, Chief Commissioner of the Greater Sydney Commission (GSC), launched Price Waterhouse Cooper's (PWC) report "Reimagining the Liverpool Health, Education, Research and Innovation Precinct", in August 2017 and reiterated the GSC's commitment to ensuring that Liverpool is as economically and socially strong as possible. PWC's Chief Economist, Jeremy Thorpe, outlined how the precinct will multiply jobs and economic activity at twice the rate of the rest of Sydney.

The report charts a way forward for the possible collaborative efforts that can be forged between the following institutions already present in Liverpool's CBD:

The Liverpool Health, Education, Research and Innovation Precinct is also strategically situated between Western Sydney Airport and Kingsford Smith Airport. It is close to the road and rail network, including the Moorebank Intermodal. This provides a great opportunity for the precinct to be a hub for the delivery of medical supplies and products. It will also encourage the development of education and will stimulate the development of new industries combining local manufacturing expertise with medical research support. Companies, particularly in the health field, will be encouraged to seize this opportunity and invest in our city.

Reimagining...the Liverpool Health, Education, Research and Innovation Precinct

All of these opportunities are packaged within a walkable city, a major trend among global cities. Walkable cities not only enjoy higher economic and environmental benefits but residents are also proven to stay better connected and engaged with their surrounding community.
