The Commercialisation team at Curtin works with researchers, investors and industry partners to take Curtin innovations, assess their commercial potential and find the best ways of bringing them to market.

How to turn a possibility into reality

Innovation, entrepreneurship and commercialisation are fundamental elements of the Curtin research mindset. We have a growing cohort of researchers who are engaged and interested in commercialisation opportunities. We’re supporting these researchers and their collaborators through a range of mechanisms that enable and foster their ideas from conception to commercial success.

The commercialisation process

All commercial prospects disclosed to us by Curtin researchers are managed through a diligent, methodical process and assessed by an expert advisory board.
