UIIN Asia–Pacific Conference on University–Industry Engagement
30 January–24 February 2017
Working on some promising sci-tech research?
Take it from idea to impact with ON Prime—a free pre-accelerator experience tailor-made for Australia’s brightest researchers and powered by CSIRO.
What is ON Prime?
ON Prime is a free part-time pre-accelerator, designed to help research teams take their ideas to the next level. Over 8 weeks (5 face-to-face sessions in total), participants will test paths for their IP, know-how or technology through a process of customer discovery and market validation, and build their entrepreneurial and business model capabilities to ensure they are working on the right problems, targeting the right markets and capitalising on the best opportunities.
ON Prime is open to researchers from all Australian publicly funded research agencies and universities, and their teams—and the good news is that all IP and equity remains the property of the participating research team or sponsoring institute. Several ON Prime experiences will be delivered simultaneously across Australia from April 2017, in locations dependant on applicant demand.
If you’re working on some promising research and are trying to establish a real world application for it, fast-track it with ON Prime.
Applications open 30 January 2017 at ONinnovation.com.au.
Be quick, applications close 24 February 2017.

Kioloa, NSW—12 March–17 March 2017
The ability to see is the remaining technological roadblock to the deployment of robots into society. The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision’s Robotic Vision Summer School 2017 provides a premium venue for graduate students and industry researchers to learn about fundamental and advanced topics in computer vision and robotics. The summer school also provides a unique opportunity to experiment with computer vision algorithms on actual robotic hardware. The program incorporates both talks and practical sessions run by world leading researchers in robotics and computer vision. In addition, there will be ample free time during the summer school for attendees to collaborate on research projects or explore the Kioloa surroundings. Registrations close 27 January 2017.
