By connecting clients and the community with the University’s internationally acclaimed researchers, we endeavour to maximise economic, social, cultural and environmental benefits through the co-creation of innovation and the transfer of knowledge.
Adelaide Enterprise was established in 2016 as an initiative of the University's Research Strategy 2016-2018 to drive entrepreneurship efforts, licensing deal flow and generate increased spinouts.
It will work side by side with Research and Business Partnerships which manages contract research, consulting and collaborative R&D partnerships.
The University of Adelaide has always been a leader in innovation and research that has made a difference to people's lives around the world. This culture of innovation has earned the University its reputation as a dynamic, forward-thinking and productive institution, with a wide range of industry and government clients.
The University has contributed over $3 million to promising early-stage technologies from our Commercial Accelerator Scheme, and we have also leveraged millions more from venture capital and angel investors as well as commercially focused support programs provided by Government.
All income generated through commercial activities is fed back to the University, helping to sustain research and other activities. But the true impact of this work is measured by the contribution it makes to the economy, society, culture, public policy, health, the environment and overall quality of life for people all over the world.
