CSIRO partnering with universities to commercialise science and research

Thursday, August 18, 2016

The Australian Government is committed to bringing Australia’s best and brightest research minds together with the skills and capabilities of world-leading commercialisation experts who can help make their ideas a reality.

As part of this commitment, CSIRO has already partnered with 20 Australian universities to fast-track the commercialisation of their science and research.

These partnerships form part of CSIRO’s ON accelerator program, a structured, national sci-tech accelerator that brings together the experience and expertise of established researchers, entrepreneurs and inspiring mentors.

With support from the National Innovation and Science Agenda, in August CSIRO opened the accelerator to applications from Australian universities and publicly-funded research agencies, resulting in the new university partnerships announced on Monday, 15 August.
