Business & research partners

Sparking innovations of commercial interest with societal and economic value.

Teamwork of businesspeople work together and combine pieces of gears. Partnership and integration concept

UNSW builds strategic research collaborations with businesses aimed at sparking innovations and discoveries leading to products and services that have societal and commercial benefits.

The complex challenges of the world, and the problem solving that is required to address them, rarely fit into a single academic discipline. That’s why our partnerships span multiple disciplines, locations, and industries converting promising ideas and discoveries into results that truly matter. 

UNSW is committed to building partnerships that achieve positive impacts–with government, industry and the community.

The University draws together knowledge from across our faculties to offer a one-stop shop for everything from specific research to Intellectual Property (IP) development, transfer and commercialisation.

At UNSW we offer support from proposal development to  Intellectual Property and commercialisation management.

You'll partner with our talented researchers, in state-of-the-art facilities. We push the boundaries of discovery and know how to advance your ideas.
