Working with UNSW Innovations … has been straightforward and uncomplicated. It is also enabling a small business such as RSID to compete with the big name players such as Google, Microsoft and Apple.
UNSW Innovations has been cooperative, understanding and focused on outcomes that facilitate a better environment for me to follow my objectives of bring value back to the university from its research.
It’s fair to say that UNSW Innovations has made engagement with the University simple and worthwhile.
We truly enjoy working with UNSW and their new approach to intellectual property and contracts will only make those engagements easier.
The bringing together of Academia and Industry @ the Innovation Sandpit has been the perfect way for Cook Medical to commence its relationship UNSW. We strongly value our new partnership and look forward to a long and prosperous future for the both of us.
BlueScope has found that participation in the sandpit has brought a fresh, new perspective to insight gathering and idea generation. The variety of perspectives that arise through a sandpit, and the way they can build upon each other provides for very interesting and exciting outcomes.
The Sandpit held at UNSW was well organised and facilitated. The structure worked very well and promoted cross fertilisation of ideas from a range of disciplines and organisations.
