Stage 4: Research-Industry Engagement

Australian research and innovation is world-class, with potential for huge positive impact in the real world, if it can just reach the right markets. Australian industries understand real-world problems and seek to solve them, if they can just connect to the right scientific and technical experts.

There’s often a huge divide in understanding and culture between research organisations, such as universities, and commercial companies. Closing the research-industry gap is a win for both sides that also benefits society in general.
