Case study: University of Melbourne

Commercialisation advice and tech transfer services

With over 100 research centres and institutes tackling society’s complex problems in innovative ways, independent world rankings place The University of Melbourne (UoM) among the leading universities internationally.

When the university’s tech transfer team suffered a period of short staffing, gemaker filled the resource gap and swiftly reduced the backlog of work by providing expert advice, mentoring and hands-on services.

Working closely with the university’s team, gemaker’s senior commercialisation managers conducted market assessments, including preliminary prior art reviews, for multiple inventions. They provided strategic advice to the university’s commercialisation committee on each invention’s commercial potential and identified key customers, partners and funders.
