Welcome to CSIRO's ON Program newsletter 

Federal Budget 2022-23

You may have seen an announcement in the Federal Budget 2022-23, that we have received a funding commitment for $37.4 million over four years for CSIRO’s research translation program (CSIRO’s ON Program) as part of the University Research Commercialisation Action Plan.

Originally developed as part of CSIRO's Innovation Catalyst in 2015, the ON program has delivered industry-leading innovation training and support to thousands of people from Australian universities and research institutes.

We’re looking forward to continuing to help researchers create impact with their research. We'll share further information with you as we work through the details of the program.
