About Us

Newcastle Innovation is the technology transfer office of the University of Newcastle. Since its creation in 1969, Newcastle Innovation has facilitated the transfer of knowledge, technology and scientific research from the University to commercial partners.

We achieve this by linking the University's research expertise to industry and securing investment to commercialise innovative technology developed within the institution.

We provide an efficient and effective commercial interface that focuses on:

  • Identification, protection and commercialisation of novel technologies developed by the University's researchers
  • Delivery of specialist research services to industry and government
  • Access to the expert knowledge base that exists within the University of Newcastle
  • Promotion of the University of Newcastle's world-class scientific research and commercialisation activities to potential research sponsors and collaborators, licensees or investors

The professional management of these activities ensures that the economic value is fully identified, captured and distributed to the various stakeholders.
