Collaborative research leverages your investment by attracting funding from other sources such as government grants. Discover funding options that may be available to your business. You can also outsource your R&D to us in a contract research arrangement. Once you identify your project objectives, we’ll work to an agreed timeline to deliver the outcome. Whatever the nature of your innovation challenge, we can tailor a program that utilises our expertise, facilities, and technology to find a solution.
Whether you're a start-up or a more established business, we provide advice and pathways to access leveraged funding for your research project. Schemes include TechVouchers, Innovation Connections, APR.Intern, ARC Linkage and CRC-P.
We have space available on campus for businesses with shared values and complementary research interests to co-locate in our innovation district. Forge deeper relationships with the university and benefit from exposure to a thriving discovery environment.
We're developing the next generation of research leaders with the skills and expertise to solve real-world problems. Engage a PhD researcher to deliver rapid results on an R&D project during a 3-month internship or explore more in-depth challenges through an industry-engaged research degree. We can connect you to PhD candidates, who will be jointly supervised by a UNSW academic and a manager from your organisation, or you can nominate a talented professional to study at UNSW and experience our world-class research environment first-hand.
We understand how important it is for you to leverage IP in market. When collaborating, we negotiate business-friendly IP terms and have a database of inventions available for commercialisation.
