Monash University is committed to translating research into real-world solutions that make a difference. The commercialisation process is a way of developing innovative ideas and innovations and applying them to real-world problems.

Commercialisation involves a range of legal and commercial processes and concepts, such as intellectual propertypatents and licensing

The diagram below shows the standard process in the commercialisation of inventions and intellectual property that are developed in an academic research environment. Use it as a guide only, as each invention has different requirements and we work with you to maximise the chance of commercial success.
