About Entrepreneurship & commercialisation

We are now entering a new era where there is demand for commercial returns of publicly funded research: research that is transformational, innovative and solution-focused. It is important for any researcher to understand the possibilities and processes that connect research outcomes to the generation of commercial intellectual property and the varied strategies for turning this commercial IP into new products, processes and services. UQ works actively in the entrepreneurship space with UQ pre-incubator Idea-hub, start up accellerator ilab, and UQ's commercialisation arm, Uniquest
