Strategic Projects & Partnerships

What we do

Recommend and initiate large scale opportunities by connecting and supporting disparate campus activities with end-users and funders. Opportunities will have the potential to create nuclei of ANU capability relevant to emerging or existing industry or societal needs for which industry or public relationships can be leveraged to access significant funding.
