Eligible Partner Entities

Researchers who would like to apply for Accelerating Commercialisation assistance without having to form a company can apply through:

  • an Eligible Partner Entity or
  • a commercialisation office of a university or other publicly funded research organisation.

An Eligible Partner Entity is an Australian corporation whose primary purpose is research but also assists its researchers to commercialise their intellectual property.  An example of an Eligible Partner Entity could be a private research institute that does not meet the definition of a publicly funded research organisation. Refer to the customer information guidelines for guidance on how we define publicly funded research organisations.

To register as an Eligible Partner Entity, an organisation has to:

  • satisfy certain criteria and
  • get approval by the Programme Delegate.
