Is your research ready for the real world? Take your science or technology from idea to impact with ON Prime5 – a free pre-accelerator experience tailor-made for our brightest researchers and led by CSIRO.
What do UWA researchers think about ON Prime?
Dr Mary Webberley, School of Biomedical Sciences:
“ON Prime helped us to reframe our thinking and our whole project. We started asking our future customers what they really need. We uncovered some surprises, which helped shape our research and our strategy for commercialization. We hope that we are now set on the right pathway to achieve massive impact.”
Harry Watts, PhD candidate, Chemical Engineering:
“Before ON Prime I would try to cold-call companies about my technology and rarely could I get a response. On Prime helps you to connect with people under a formal program and interview them in a professional manner, seeking to understand their problems rather than sell them something. The industry was very responsive to this and we now have an extensive network of contacts seeking to hear more about how we can help solve the problems they have raised.”
Dr Peter Arthur, School of Molecular Sciences:
“We wanted to see if our concept had application outside of academia. ON Prime helped us critically test our concept. At the same time we developed practical knowledge about the commercialisation process and insight into what really drives innovation.”
