Applications for the 2017 CSIRO ON Prime program open TODAY.
CSIRO ON Prime is a national, entry level, part time pre-accelerator program, aimed at researcher groups looking to investigate real world application of their technology. The program runs over 8 weeks, and requires a commitment of 6 days face to face, and an additional 10 hours per week from research teams.
During the program, teams receive one on one and group mentoring, as well as a toolkit of materials to help them assess the commercial validity of their technology.
For 2017, CSIRO will be running a number of generic ON Prime programs around Australia (suitable for any technology), as well as a specific defence focussed ON Prime, to be run out of Adelaide.
Applications for both intakes close 24 February 2017. Dates for the face to face sessions for the 2017 program are outlined below.
Applicants should ensure at least one member of their project team is available to attend each of the sessions.
Session 1 (2 days) Between 10 Apr – 28 Apr
Session 2 Between 1 May- 12 May
Session 3 Between 14 May – 26 May
Session 4 Between 29 May – 9 June
Final Showcase Between 12 June – 23 June
