Accelerating Australia is a national consortium of biomedical research institutions, universities, healthcare providers and companies.
The project facilitates the translation of biomedical research through entrepreneurial experience courses, brokerage and early stage commercialisation support services, collaborating across sectors, organisations, disciplines and support services. The project also aims to identify promising biomedical products and assist in bringing them to production.
Outcomes: Accelerating Australia continues to run programs in Western Australia, South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria, with affiliates in Queensland and Tasmania. Almost 1400 individuals have received commercialisation training resulting in over 160 medical products being developed. There is improved collaboration between universities and companies within each state node.
