Connecting Industry and Research Expertise

Industry can easily connect with relevant researchers through three freely available directories developed by IC Global, which is powered by the CSIRO.

ExpertConnect is a free, publicly searchable database of Australia’s research expertise, with more than 70,000 expert profiles from over 220 research organisations. The database is constantly updated automatically using a variety of sources, including, patent data, grant data, journal articles and profiles. Users can search for a topic of interest using everyday language, and the platform takes into account academic expertise and industry knowledge to provide a list of the most relevant experts that are most likely to also understand the business context.

Expert FindHer has been developed with the aim to boost gender equality in Australia’s innovation and startup ecosystems. It provides information about funding sources, programs, networks and tools that can help women entrepreneurs.

Innovation Challenges allows users to put forward details of the problem they are looking to solve, and experts can propose solutions. This facilitates complex problems to be solved in innovative ways, and assists users to identify the most promising solution and the expertise required.
