Three part webinar series-
Maximising Impact and Translation From Your Research

This webinar is the first in a three part series. Hosted by UoM’s Business Development and Innovation team within Research, Innovation and Commercialisation (RIC). The series will introduce you to research engagement and translation principles at the University, and provide you with the necessary information and tools to make the most out of research engagement.

Dates: Friday 12 or Tuesday 16 March
Time: 12pm


You will leave the session with a greater understanding of:

  • What IP is, how it can be safeguarded, and how it applies to your research
  • How IP can help your research and broaden its impact
  • What the polices and processes are around IP
  • How you can personally benefit from research translation
  • The considerations when signing research agreements and contracts

The webinar will be hosted by Eric Hoefgen. Eric completed a PhD in Chemical Engineering, and currently helps researchers translate their research as a member of UoM’s Knowledge & Tech Transfer team.

Purposeful Engagement Workshops

The series aims to:

  • strengthen your confidence in enacting meaningful and ethical engagement practice;
  • deepen your understanding of different engagement contexts, roles, approaches and frameworks;
  • develop fundamental and purposeful engagement skills and capabilities; and
  • create a shared space for mutual learning from peers and experienced practitioners to discuss current trends, challenges and opportunities.

Applications for TRAMx Now Open

TRAMx assists researchers from across the University as well as the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct to maximise the impact potential of their research. They provide a range of programs tailored to teach, support and guide researchers along this process, including problem validation and market engagement through to funding strategy and business case generation.

The program is currently recruiting participants for the first digital TRAMx Bootcamps for the year coming up on, March 4, March 18 and March 30.  There is no cost to the individual or faculty for attendance. TRAMx is keen to have the biggest impact possible by empowering as many researchers across all faculties at the University and Biomedical Precinct as possible.

Researchers will:

  • Learn entrepreneurial methodology to think about research differently
  • Connect with supporters/mentors
  • Apply the frameworks to real projects
