2023 is shaping up to be a great year! Let's get it ON!

Welcome to 2023. We’re so glad you're here to join us on the innovation journey.

We were thrilled to celebrate the return of the ON Program in 2022 with our event Further Together: unlocking value from research with so many members of Australia's innovation ecosystem in December. This celebration was a wonderful way to wrap up 2022 and set the scene for 2023.

2023 is already off to a cracking start. ON Prime 12 teams are busily prepping for showcases in late January/ early February, and our ON Accelerate 7 teams are gearing up for Immersion Week in February.

We are here to support the scientific and research sector as Australia's national science agency and innovation catalyst. We're very proud to have supported 3300 people through ON programs since 2015 - we're looking forward to working with our facilitators, mentors and coaches to increase this number over the next 12 months.
