A huge part of our culture is being connected to industry. Launch is UNSW Canberra’s Defence Innovation Hub located in Canberra. Launch is a collaborative working space where we aim to create a vibrant and innovative environment where industry, government, and academia can come together to collaborate on defence and security research and development. We currently host over a dozen companies and their 350 employees that span across cyber security, space, artificial intelligence, and defence technology.
Through our collaboration with UNSW Founders, the Canberra Innovation Network, the UNSW Career Discovery Mentoring Program (CDMP) and various other pathways, Launch is a valuable resource for students who are looking for internships in the defence and security sector. The internships offered by Launch collaborators on Northbourne can help students gain valuable experience, develop their skills, and make connections that will help them succeed in their careers. We also host and facilitate networking events, tours, mentorship and learning opportunities for UNSW students to visit our collaborators and learn about the entrepreneurship and innovation journey.
