The CSC's Commercialisation Research Network (CRN) draws together academic and industry researchers interested in collaboration and exchange in the field of commercialisation. As a multi-disciplinary field, the CRN aims to bridge the gaps between a range of different research themes. These are found at a macro or systems level, as well as at the organisational and individual or team level. The CRN enables members to share ideas, data and findings while fostering collaboration.
The CSC Commercialisation Clinic has been designed for managers within small and large organisations, as well as inventors wanting to commercialise a new product, service or process. This clinic reviews and critically examines a project using a diagnostic assessment tool developed by UWA academics in conjunction with global partners. This assessment process offers a strategic level view of the innovation, and the potential commercialisation pathways that might be followed.
The CSC Let's Talk Commercialisation program is designed to foster interest in and the sharing of knowledge about innovation, new product development and the process of commercialisation. We believe that the best way to learn is to engage with a community of interest and share ideas about best practice. This will be delivered via a series of interactive seminars, symposia, workshops and webinars.
Bringing people who share a common interest in commercialisation is a core part of what CSC is about. The critical ingredients in successful commercialisation are the strengthening of your knowledge and networks. We also aim to promote best practice in commercialisation at all levels. To achieve these goals, we collaborate with other like-minded organisations, and serve as a focal point for applied research and public policy reviews of innovation, university technology transfer, entrepreneurship and small business support programs.
