What makes Cohort truly unique is our location within the $5B Gold Coast Health & Knowledge Precinct, and our extensive network of world-renowned researchers, scientists, health and technology experts.

Located within the Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct in Southport, Lumina is a 9.5-hectare commercial cluster dedicated to life sciences, health and technology related businesses.

As landowner, master developer and planning authority, EDQ is facilitating the development of premium development-ready land over the next 10 to 15 years.

COHORT is Economic Development Queensland’s first activation within Lumina and is a catalyst project for the early attraction of industry.

The 200-hectare Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct (GCHKP) is a unique global business location for high-tech industry development, research collaboration and jobs of the future – a community of people who look beyond the horizon.
