The $5,000 Science-Business Match-up Challenge

Do you have a great research idea? Or are you a business looking to explore new possibilities available through sourcing research and development?

This challenge is your chance to tell your story and showcase your ideas to the widest possible audience in order to collaborate with new partners that can take your research and development projects to the next level.


The Challenge is open to any Australian researcher or business.

Value of the Award

The prize money of $5,000 will be awarded to the person who generates the highest engagement score around their entry.

The winner will also receive a free registration to The Business of Innovation 2016, 7-9 March at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Flights and accommodation will be at the winner’s own expense.

How to Enter?

Entrants must submit an idea for an R&D project in a video of three minutes or less.  You could talk about your technology or product, some of the challenges you are facing and what type of partners you are looking for to take your innovation to the next stage. The goal of the video is to engage your business and research with a wide audience. The more creative, fascinating or engaging the video, the wider the audience that will see it. However, it doesn’t have to be an expensive production.

Submission Requirements & Due Date

Applications are submitted directly to the Sponsor by 1 February 2016.
