Industry opportunities

UNSW Science believes in the power of collaboration – where the solution to even the most intractable problem is only a conversation away. 

We are committed to sharing our science with the community, developing new partnerships with industry, and strengthening those bonds we already have at both the local and global scale. With a wealth of research excellence, deep subject matter expertise and world class research infrastructure, we are committed to building stronger connections and developing partnerships and industry opportunities on local and global scales.


“Entering a new partnership, be it with industry, government or a not-for-profit, is always an exciting time, but it’s the path that collaboration takes us along – the problems we solve, the jobs we create and the global change we affect – that motivates us.”

- Professor Dane McCamey, Pro Vice-Chancellor Research at UNSW

“We felt that UNSW could offer us a solution to some of the problems we were facing. The relationship we developed with UNSW allowed us to dedicate a researcher to focus solely on the challenges we were facing. That proved incredibly valuable to us. The process was easy. Working with the academics, the University, was excellent. Seamless I would say. I'd definitely recommend it.”

-Dr Simon Fielding, Principal Chemist, Memjet Technology

“The team at UNSW was able to analyse the data and provide really specific and useful insights which ultimately allows us to improve our designs and manufacturing. The results provide a breakthrough in our thinking which is now guiding our product development.”

- Alex Bilyk, VP Research, CAP-XX
