Moving towards a knowledge city? Brisbane's experience in knowledge-based urban development
Yigitcanlar, Tan (2011) Moving towards a knowledge city? Brisbane's experience in knowledge-based urban development. International Journal of Knowledge-Based Organizations, 1(3), pp. 22-38.
: 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 knowledge-based urban development strategies of Brisbane, Australia that support generation, attraction, and retention of investment and talent. The paper puts forward a clear understanding on the policy frameworks, and relevant applications of Brisbane’s knowledge-based urban development experience in becoming a prosperous knowledge city, and concludes by providing invaluable insights and directions for other cities seeking knowledge-based urban development.
