DSI Solutions for Universities

Access leading industry opportunities

The Australian defence science and technology sector is dynamic and diverse. With local companies developing world-leading technologies and Defence investing in collaborations between universities and industry now is the perfect time to get involved.

Finding the right collaboration partners means access to funds, exciting new thinking and commercialisation opportunities. With our deep network of relationships within the sector, we are uniquely equipped to help you find and secure the right collaborators in industry and Defence.

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.
