How to turn a possibility into reality
Innovation, entrepreneurship and IP 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.
We’re looking for investment, collaboration and licensing partners for several technologies.
Support for entrepreneurs and start-ups
The three Curtinnovation programs – Ignition, Accelerate and Kickstart – are designed to help aspiring entrepreneurs at different stages of the commercialisation process.
The Curtinnovation Awards identify new technologies, products and services arising from research at Curtin or its collaborators.
