4. Creating an innovation nexus where Macquarie and our partners contribute solutions to the world and develop lasting relationships

Over recent years, Macquarie has made major investments in targeted areas that have strong external relationships, e.g. medicine, healthcare and hearing. We need to consolidate and expand these investments. Therefore, we will extend our engagement locally and beyond by:

  • delivering Australia's first university-led integrated academic health campus to bring education, biomedical and translational research together with state-of-the-art clinical care
  • expanding our relationship with Cochlear and other hearing-­‐related entities so as to be internationally recognized as a world-­‐leading center of excellence in hearing
  • engaging more strategically and sustainably for mutual advantage with the neighbouring technology corridor, as well as industry, commerce, corporations and government beyond
  • partnering and working collaboratively with leading global and local NGOs, foundations and similar organisations
  • developing new opportunities for student/staff engagement and work with University partners
  • using our land asset to support our scholarly and academic goals by bringing key partners onto campus
