The University of Sydney’s Parramatta/Westmead Campus proposal builds on its 80-year history of engagement in Western Sydney and complements its longstanding leadership in the Westmead Health and Education Precinct, which contains the largest concentration of health services in Australia.
The first phase of the new Parramatta/Westmead Campus is part of the University’s commitment to invest $500 million in bolstering a great future for Western Sydney. By 2050 the aim is to host 25,000 students, generate 20,000 jobs and add $13 billion to the NSW economy.
The health and education sectors are key ingredients for the creation of precincts that foster innovation.
At our May business lunch hear about the new Parramatta/Westmead Campus’ initial focus on the themes of advanced manufacturing, artificial intelligence and bridging the unequal distribution of wealth, health and security. These themes, combined with a world class teaching hospital and university, will be a cornerstone of Sydney’s next great place.
