Moving towards a knowledge city : Brisbane's experience in knowledge-based urban development
Yigitcanlar, Tan & Lee, Shinyi (2009) Moving towards a knowledge city : Brisbane's experience in knowledge-based urban development. In Proceeding of the State of Australian Cities National Conference 2009, University of Western Australia, Perth, Western Australia .
In the global knowledge economy, knowledge-intensive industries and knowledge workers are extensively seen as the primary factors to improve the welfare and competitiveness of cities. To attract and retain such industries and workers, cities produce knowledge-based urban development strategies, where such strategising is also an important development mechanism for cities and their economies. This paper investigates Brisbane’s knowledge-based urban development strategies that support generation, attraction, and retention of investment and talent. The paper provides a clear understanding on the policy frameworks, and relevant applications of Brisbane’s knowledge-based urban development experience in becoming a prosperous knowledge city.
