Our ON Program is a national deep-tech innovation program designed to fast-track great research and technology into real world outcomes. If you’ve got an interesting project but need help taking it to the next level, our ON Program can help.

Where big ideas become big impact

The ON Program is focused on improving Australia’s innovation performance by helping research teams build their entrepreneurial competencies and collaborate more with industry and the broader innovation system to understand and address global challenges. We provide research teams with access to incredible facilitators, mentors, experts and tools to help develop these skills.

We launched the ON Program in July 2015 to address Australia’s transitioning economy. While traditional industries will continue to play an important role in our future, we have a significant opportunity to help shape the foundations of Australia’s future industries through the translation of great science and technology. Since then we’ve supported the creation of 61 new companies and attracted more than $73 million in commercialisation grants and venture funding.

We are currently adapting the program to pilot tailored and virtual formats, to continue to support researchers create impact with their research.
