Enterprising

Think enterprising and you think Monash. We have a long and proud distinguished history of ground breaking translational research, that together with our partners, has changed the world. The enviable list includes IVF, Monash FODMAP diet, development of rapid blood tests to diagnose COVID 19 and in the energy field the paradigm changing development of green ammonia for energy storage - just to name a few.

Our research results in commercial success because of our world leading research, research platforms, and engagement with world leading partners to create these opportunities. Many successes seem to happen overnight and some are many years in the making.

Partners choose to be based on or near, our campuses to be at the forefront of opportunity.   Formed in partnership with the Victorian government, this is known as the Monash Technology Precinct.

In addition to commercial success, start-ups are nurtured, entrepreneurialism is encouraged and students gain valuable learning and professional experience and talent pools are cultivated for future workforces.
