The Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions has launched a 10-year plan to set the State up as a global leader in medical research.

Welcoming the Health and Medical Research Strategy: 2022-2032, Minister for Innovation, Medical Research and the Digital Economy, Jaala Pulford said the Strategy would support more medical breakthroughs, drive economic growth, create jobs and save lives.

“The Strategy aims to strengthen the State’s research capabilities, support researchers to solve global health challenges and increase commercial opportunities,” Ms Pulford said.

“To achieve this, the Strategy focuses on talent, collaboration, big ideas and generating outcomes,” she said.

“The Strategy will expand our capability to find new public health solutions and back new technologies to improve the health outcomes.”

Releasing the Strategy, the Department said its four focus areas were Talent, Collaborate, Big ideas, and Generating outcomes.

“Victoria is well‑placed to build on its reputation for discovering, trialling and developing the solutions to the world’s most pressing health problems,” the Department said.

“The delivery of the Strategy will be implemented through targeted action plans and strategies — adapting to emerging priorities and opportunities over the next decade to enable planning and investment,” it said.

“To ensure the Strategy is delivering on its aims of solving health challenges and advancing the Victorian economy, progress will be measured to inform future plans and actions.”
