"However the opening of a laboratory focused on industry engagement shows our focus on driving wealth creation not only in this state, but for all Australians,” he said.
“NICTA Queensland will continue provide access to all of NICTA’s research and business development capabilities.
"However we are also developing some unique capabilities in Queensland around social analytics and organisational development.
