Benchmarking is a powerful technique to determine the standing of a city
or cluster against its competitors. The chapter places a knowledge
precinct from Brisbane in a benchmarking exercise and evaluates its
performance against the reputable knowledge precinct best practices from
Cambridge, Barcelona, Helsinki, Eindhoven, Dublin, Sydney and
Melbourne. The chapter employs a place making framework for the
benchmarking exercise that is developed to be used in knowledge and
innovation spaces. The findings not only provide insights for the
further development of the Dutton Park Knowledge Precinct of Brisbane,
but also generate overall lessons for other cities aiming to develop
prosperous and sustainable knowledge precincts.
