Innovation & Commercialisation for Defence

Gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to take your defence innovation to market

Defence Trailblazer has developed a Defence Innovation & Commercialisation Program to identify research and technology that can contribute to Australia’s sovereign defence capability.

The program will see defence industry leaders, university academics and commercialisation experts work together with participants to optimise pathways for commercialisation and market access.

Addressing the specific needs of innovators looking to engage with defence market opportunities, the program will be delivered in several stages and has commenced with an information session exploring key routes to  commercialisation.

Defence Trailblazer Commercialisation Bootcamp

The Defence Trailblazer Commercialisation Bootcamp provides a solid introduction to entrepreneurship and commercialisation channels with a specific focus on the defence market.

The Bootcamp will run across 2 days with access to experienced commercialisation professionals and defence industry experts. Featuring interactive workshop activities, the Bootcamp will culminate in a value proposition pitch session with constructive feedback from experts.

The Bootcamp will be hosted by the University of Adelaide’s ThincLab and UNSW Founders, with support from industry partners. Applications are now open.

The program provides participants with the knowledge needed to maximise the benefits of the Entrepreneurial Foundations in Defence program that follows from March to May 2024.
