Senior UON researchers can offer exclusive consultation services to help achieve results for your business within a short time-frame. Depending on your business needs, these can span 3 weeks to 2 months, and are funded by an individual industry partner.
If your business has specific research needs, senior UON researchers are available to work on longer-term projects (6 months – 3 years) under an individual contract agreement.
Team up with senior researchers to work on solving major problems of national importance. Linkage grants can last up to 5 years, or potentially be ongoing, with funding from industry partners and UON matched by the Australian Research Centre. Industry contribution can be cash or ‘in kind’.
UON researchers can work on a specific project with a partner SME. This can involve a placement within the business to develop an idea with commercial potential. Up to $50,000 funding from the Australian Government is available, and placements last up to 12 months.
The Australian Government has a range of rebates available to help facilitate the short-term placement of PhD students into Australian businesses.
