The Defence and Security Innovation Precinct is proposed to be located along Constitution Avenue in the centre of Canberra’s research and innovation corridor from Belconnen to the airport, linking science, education, technology, defence and other government agencies (ASIO, ASD, DVA, Home Affairs).

"This planned precinct will open the door to new collaborative opportunities because of the access it will grant to government, global defence industry, R&D organisations, UNSW researchers, partners and students," announced UNSW Canberra rector Professor Michael Frater at Land Forces 2018 in Adelaide.

The Defence and Security Innovation Precinct will be led by the UNSW Defence Research Institute, which aims to develop and deliver world-class defence and security capabilities to safeguard Australia.

"Earlier this year we established the UNSW Defence Research Institute, which draws on the expertise of our researchers to provide Defence with solutions to real world problems,” said Professor Frater.

UNSW Canberra is currently finalising a formal proposal for the city campus for the ACT government to consider.

The proposed city campus would provide much needed space for the current and future needs of UNSW Canberra research with a range of accommodation options for a significant number of research organisations on site.

"It is the ideal home for R&D teams to work with some of the world’s leading experts in defence research in areas like space and cyber," Professor Frater said. 

He said the extensive range of stakeholders in the ACT government and community will be engaged throughout the project.
