ARI Overview

The University of Adelaide has created two new divisions to replace the services provided by Adelaide Research & Innovation effective 1 July 2016.

University of Adelaide Enterprise will manage commercialisation, IP licensing and spinout activity and Research Contracts & Partnerships (RCP) will manage research contracts, consulting and related partnerships.

It has been a pleasure and a privilege for us to help facilitate the important engagement between University researchers, industry and government.

By connecting clients and the community with the University’s internationally acclaimed researchers, we endeavoured to maximise economic, social, cultural and environmental benefits through the co-creation of innovation and the transfer of knowledge.

We contributed over $3 million to promising early-stage technologies from our own Commercial Accelerator Scheme, and leveraged millions more from venture capital and angel investors as well as commercially focused support programs provided by Government.

All the best, from the team at ARI :)
