Solutions for industry and government

At Deakin, when we see problems, we find practical solutions for you, your business, and our communities.

Whether you’re looking to commercialise new products, develop new initiatives, expand into new markets, or create the jobs of the future, we can help you. Our research is rarely confined to just one faculty, institute, or research centre, this means when you partner with us, we bring all our expertise, technologies, and resources to deliver the solutions you need.

Working with government on research activities

Our industry and government partnerships play a pivotal role in developing research solutions that address the needs of Australian communities. Fostering mutually beneficial relationships allows us to:

  • secure funding and external resources for our partners
  • prioritise projects based on community agendas
  • collaborate and share expertise to deliver large scale, high value outcomes
  • develop industry precincts, such as the Geelong Economic Futures Precinct, that provide world-class research and development facilities
