Welcome to our Regional Innovation Program Newsletter. As you may be aware, Sunshine Coast was the first region to receive the Queensland Government's Advancing Regional Innovation funding.

The funding was made possible by the partnership of over 26 organisations across the region with the application being coordinated and driven by Sunshine Coast Council, Noosa Council and Regional Development Australia Sunshine Coast.

We have started the planning for the Regional Innovation Program and we are keen to keep our partners up to date with the progress.
