UQ Industry Connect programs are built around pre-qualified industry needs and are a proven vehicle to maximise company innovation scouting activities.

UniQuest facilitates targeted visit programs and forums where company representatives and researchers can interact with a view to generating deal opportunities.  Programs are designed around pre-qualified company or industry needs and matched with leading researchers at The University of Queensland.

To sustain the drivers for creating worldwide impact from UQ intellectual property, UniQuest, in partnership with UQ, reaches out to organisations that seek to enhance their innovation alliances with a leading research institution.   Accomplishing this alignment helps to stimulate the transition from single or adhoc technology interactions to meaningful partnerships based on strategic intent and world-class research at UQ.

UQ Industry Connect programs provide:

  • An efficient manner to meet researchers with the most relevant innovations
  • A proven vehicle to maximise the results of your innovation scouting activities
  • Pre-arranged meeting schedule to fit within travel timeframes
  • Opportunity to present your company’s R&D needs to a UQ-wide researcher audience
  • Access to UQ researchers that match your innovation needs

"UniQuest have proven themselves repeatedly to Janssen to be excellent at research commercialisation.  They understand industry and what it needs when companies engage with universities and their technology transfer organisations.  They put in considerable effort to qualify their projects against a company’s strategic needs.  We have multiple deals now with UniQuest – small and large – and found them to be respectful and responsive in the legal negotiations, and committed to post deal management.  We hope for more deals with UniQuest in the future.”
