Case study: Macquarie University

Grant writing and tech transfer support

Ranked in the top 1% of universities in the world by Times Higher Education Rankings 2021, Macquarie University is recognised globally for its pre-eminence in key research disciplines, as well as producing highly sought-after graduates.

Macquarie University engaged gemaker to support their technology transfer office to assess an increasing number of invention disclosures.

Working closely with University’s team, gemaker’s Commercialisation Specialists conducted market opportunity assessments, including preliminary prior art and competitive advantage reviews, for multiple invention disclosures.

By providing expert feedback from industry, gemaker was able to support the Macquarie team to make more efficient decisions regarding the progress of projects in their commercialisation pipeline, especially in project areas outside of their technical expertise.

gemaker also performed a review of an Industrial Transformation Research Hub (ITRH) grant application for Macquarie. A gemaker commercialisation and grant writing specialist provided a strategic commercialisation review of the grant and made recommendations on how to improve the quality of the grant application.
