About the ON Program

The ON program is delivered as part of a broad suite of innovation initiatives. The directive of our innovation program remains the same as when the ON program was first formed  to fast-track technology and ideas into the market and to get it into people's hands more quickly.

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.

Our program of events and experiences delivered throughout this time (including ON Accelerate, ON Prime) has been successful in driving impact and creating cultural change.

Our programs continue to support researchers and deep tech businesses create impact with their work.
