The Monash precinct

Woodside Innovation Centre
Woodside Innovation Centre
The Monash precinct contributes AUD $9.4 billion to the Victorian economy each year, supports more than 13,000 businesses and employs more than 82,000 people*.

Monash University is at the epicentre of the innovation cluster located in Clayton, in Melbourne's south-east. The Australian Synchrotron, the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication, the Federal Government agency for scientific research in Australia (CSIRO) and the Monash Health hospital all lie within a three-kilometre radius of Australia's largest university.

This precinct is world class and delivers impact globally – contributing to productivity, prosperity and the betterment of communities locally and internationally. Our industry-partnered precinct translates discovery into tangible outcomes in areas ranging from next generation pharmaceutical products and medical therapeutics to automated machines and robotics.

The collaborative environment, underpinned with a unique integrated network of infrastructure, enables the precinct partners to push the limits of computing, imaging and materials. The precinct means that we attract the highest calibre students – because they get to work and learn alongside world-leading researchers and international industry partners such as Agilent Technologies, BHP Billiton, Bosch Australia, Janssen, Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin, Pfizer and Woodside.
