ON towards the future

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.

The ON program received funding through the Australian Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda (NISA) from 2016 to 2020.

Our program of events and experiences delivered throughout this time (including ON Accelerate, ON Prime, ON Runway, ON Tribe and Launch Camp) were successful in driving impact.

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

We can tailor our programs to help your organisation develop the skills to fast-track your technology and ideas to market.
