This guide has been developed to encourage and support UWA researchers who want to commercialise their inventions
Commercialisation at UWA generally starts with submitting an Invention Disclosure. A project manager will work with you to explore the commercial potential of your research and work through the stages illustrated below.
Typically we look to commercialise technologies by licensing to industry partners or creating spin out companies.
We also support technology development through our PATHFINDER proof-of-concept fund.
Please submit an Invention Disclosure if you think your research has resulted in intellectual property (IP) that can be commercialised.
RDI will assign a project manager to assess the IP and explore its commercial potential.
