The Infrastructure Australia (IA) approval of the business case for Hobart’s $400 million Science and Technology Precinct is a ringing endorsement of its capacity to fundamentally and positively shift the State’s economy and community.
The Hobart precinct will draw together the world-class science and technology disciplines of the University in a way that promotes multidisciplinary research, providing a foundation for the expansion of new research endeavours across the State. In the south, STEM will be linked with the Medical Sciences, Marine Sciences, and Arts and Cultural Precincts to create new opportunity. In the north, STEM will provide a platform for expanded opportunity in defence, maritime science, wood science, agriculture, design and education.
The Science and Technology Precinct would be built at the corner of Argyle and Melville streets, initially accommodating 3000 students and 700 staff in contemporary teaching environments and cutting-edge research facilities.
