Information for researchers

IP Commercialisation helps research staff and students at Curtin achieve commercial outcomes for their research. We support various events encouraging commercialisation and entrepreneurship on campus. We encourage enquiries from all staff and students who believe there is commercial potential in their research.

The commercialisation process

There is a diligent process of assessment for every proposal.

Kickstart funding

The Kickstart program provides monetary support of up to $300,000 for the commercialisation for Curtin research.

Commercialisation Advisory Board (CAB)

The CAB provides advice and guidance for all stages of the commercialisation lifecycle.

Disclosure form

The first step toward commercialisation of your technology or research outcome is to complete an IP Disclosure form.

IP policy

Under Curtin’s IP Policy, the University owns IP developed by staff in the course of their duties.
