Solving problems for industry and government

At Deakin research is rarely confined to just one faculty, institute or research centre, ensuring our researchers, technologies and resources are all working together to deliver the best possible solutions for our partners in industry and government.

We provide our partners with the opportunity to access our world-class facilities, see innovation and impact in action and benefit from joint funding opportunities.

Through our growing capability and capacity, we can help support the innovation and commercialisation of products, services and ideas and develop solutions with impact.

Explore the commercial potential of your research

We have a dedicated team of commercial research experts with a range of industry backgrounds. The team supports researchers and industry partners to bring ideas to market, manage contracts and intellectual property, as well assist with joint ventures and spin out opportunities arising from our research activities.

We can help you find solutions and maximise the potential of your research.

Being based at ManuFutures has allowed us to be embedded in an environment where we can access like-for-like businesses who are on the same journey. We work with mentors and get advice in business, law and technology, and we have access to talent. We employ Deakin graduates and expect to employ more.
