Will 2018 be the year that you turn your science or technology research ideas into reality? CSIRO ON Prime – a part-time pre-accelerator designed for researchers - might just be the thing to get you there.

Applications are now open for ON Prime, Australia’s sci-tech accelerator designed to help researchers translate their big ideas into real-life impact.

ON Prime is a part-time pre-accelerator that brings together Australia’s brightest researchers—that’s where you come in—with leading entrepreneurs, business and commercialisation specialists and inspiring mentors. Together, you will test paths for your IP and/or technology through a process of customer discovery and market validation, and unlock your entrepreneurial nous required to take your work to the next level.

The best bit? There is no cost to you for participating and there are no strings attached – you get to keep your IP. Teams selected into ON Prime also have the opportunity to earn up to $5,000 as performance bonus throughout the program.

More than 30 UON researchers have successfully completed ON Prime in 2016 and twicein 2017, and they are keen to share their experiences and encourage other UON researchers to take advantage of the benefits of this free program in 2018.

At this information session you will hear from:

  • Kate Hines, CSIRO's Innovation Experience Manager
  • Antony Martin, UON researcher and team lead for Rapid Phenotyping (ON Prime1)
  • Kirsty Pringle, HMRI researcher, ARC Future Fellow and team lead for BiomarX (ON Prime1)

Applications for ON Prime4 close on 2 February 2018, so come along and hear from your research colleagues about their ON Prime experience and gear up to get your application in.
