Access leading research capability

Australia’s universities and research centres offer a wealth of research talent and internationally recognised facilities. Our mission is to help your business access these resources and facilitate productive outcomes. Working with top academics and universities could give your organisation a competitive edge – providing significant boosts in new technology development, solving commercialisation roadblocks and embedding innovation in your business.

With our deep network of relationships within academia, we can help identify and refer you to the ideal partner or partners for your needs.

Great minds think differently

There are key differences between the objectives and priorities of academics, business professionals and Defence. There are also differences in the communication styles and terminology used by these three sectors. Getting on the same page and understanding each other clearly is vital to the success of any collaboration.

We help bridge the differences between diverging priorities and communication styles to ensure that everyone is understood and all points of view are considered. Our job is to bring great minds together.
