CSIRO ON PRIME PULLS OUT RESEARCH GEMS

CSIRO's ON Prime program is gathering big ideas from all over the country, showing that when it comes to innovation, Australia can still punch above its weight.

ON Prime is CSIRO's science and technology acceleration program, designed to grab the best ideas from research and fast track them to applications in the real world of business.

So far, this round of research applicants have unearthed gems in the medical, winemaking, and food processing industries, amongst others.

Shari Forbes, from a winning research team at the University of Technology Sydney, said they were thrilled to be accepted into ON Prime and were looking forward to meeting with their mentors and commercialisation experts.

“We’re confident our science is valid and the impact it can have is huge, but what we’ve been missing is the deep network of industry partners and potential customers to test and validate the idea in the market,” Professor Forbes said.

CSIRO executive Dr Larry Marshall has been thrilled by the sheer quantity and quality of applications. Out of 160 applicant teams, the pool was narrowed to a final group of just 39 teams, all of whom will be given the tools and connections to propell their innovations onto the market.

Applications for ON Accelerate – the ON experience designed to build market validated ideas and develop and test business models – will open on 4 October 2016 with 10 positions available for research teams across the country.  

If you or anyone you know is working on the future of scitech, On Accelerate might not be a bad place to start.
