ANSTO Innovation Precinct

ShireBiz in 2014 presented to ANSTO a proposal for a High Tech Business Park for vacant land on the Western Side of New Illawarra Road.

This concept was embraced by ANSTO senior management and has grown into what is called the ANSTO Innovation Precinct comprising a Graduate Centre, Innovation Incubator [nandin] and a 200 hectare Industrial Park.  The new nandin building was opened in June 2021 by the NSW Premier.

The concept is modelled on the Giant Campus in Grenoble, France, which after a few decades is home to 30,000 including students, scientists, administrators and technicians. The core research and industrial focus of the precinct are on Materials Science, Health and the Environment.
