Commercial Accelerator Scheme
Providing a cash injection for early stage inventions and services
The Commercial Accelerator Scheme (CAS) funds the development of innovations at all stages of the commercial pipeline to the point where they can be commercialised as new products, services and companies.
Through CAS, the University contributes up to $400,000 each year in cash to research projects with a commercial application. The funding is provided for proof of concept and early commercialisation activities, to promote translational research for impact, and greater industry engagement.
