Industry partnerships

Sharing expertise to solve problems
We connect our leading researchers and students with industry, business and government partners. We're working with our partners to tackle issues ranging from climate change to quantum computing.

Why partner with us?

We have both the experts and facilities to accommodate your research and development (R&D) needs.

When you partner with us, you'll work with people who are leaders in their fields, and have the ability to solve some of the greatest challenges faced by industry, businesses and government. 

You'll also have access to our state-of-the-art equipment and facilities

Our competitive rates ensure your organisation maximises R&D budgets, and allows you to claim the R&D tax incentive. We can scope projects according to your budget without the need to hire or retain costly full-time staff. We also have access to government funding and grants, which can increase your research budget.

The University of Sydney is working with three other universities to establish the Sydney Quantum Academy, helping to ensure that cutting-edge quantum research translates into a sustainable industry and jobs.

Sydney Quantum Academy is an initiative of Macquarie University, UNSW Sydney, the University of Sydney and University of Technology Sydney and has funding support from the NSW Government. It will help train the next generation of engineers and scientists in quantum computing, cementing Sydney’s place as the leading global city for quantum technology and ensuring NSW is a world centre for jobs in the emerging quantum economy.

The Key Centre for Polymers and Colloids (KCPC) has recently licensed magnetic nanoparticle stabilisation technology to the University of South Australia spin off company, Ferronova P/L.

Ferronova has now received approval to use this technology in “first in human” trials at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, for sentinel lymph node detection in oral cancer patients.

These magnetic nanoparticles have already demonstrated better performance for this application compared to the current commercialised product in preclinical mouse and pig model studies over the past 3 years. If these trials are successful, they could offer vastly improved health outcomes for a wide range of cancer sufferers.
