The University of Sydney – as part of the Westmead health, education and research precinct – has partnered with Sydney Science Park to make western Sydney one of Australia’s largest knowledge hubs. University of Sydney Vice-Chancellor Dr Michael Spence said the partnership will help to create more highly skilled jobs in western Sydney.

Sydney Science Park and Westmead precinct members will establish presences on each other’s campuses under the new partnership. The other members of the Westmead precinct include Western Sydney Local Health District, The Sydney Children’s Hospital Network, Westmead Private Hospital, Western Sydney University, The Westmead Institute for Medical Research and The Children’s Medical Research Institute.

“This partnership with Sydney Science Park creates promising opportunities to collaborate closely on industry engagement, health research and policy, including the development of medical and biological technology. The opportunity to share resources and information for the benefit of western Sydney and the wider community is a welcome addition to our deep commitment to the future of the Westmead precinct,” Dr Spence said.
