About IP commercialisation

The Office of IP Commercialisation provides a gateway to Curtin University for industry and investors with an interest in innovative new technologies, products and services.

Curtin has a range of technology-based opportunities from very early stage projects to stand-alone, profitable companies. The University participates in many industry collaborations and has been actively involved in the establishment of 15 companies based on intellectual property developed by Curtin researchers. These companies are rapidly growing and employ over 100 people in new economy jobs and generate revenues in excess of $15 million per annum. Companies include Sensear, HiSeisiCetana and Renergi.
