If you have an issue that requires specialised research and development expertise, or you would like to develop a joint research arrangement with UWA, the Office of Industry and Innovation can help.
The Faculty of Science is developing research outcomes that benefit industry and the wider community.
The University fosters research initiatives between business and industry and priority areas of the University, especially in strategic areas of research strength.
The initiative is led by Pro Vice-Chancellor, Research, Winthrop Professor Peter Davies, and develops larger-scale collaborations between UWA and Commonwealth Government agencies, particularly the CSIRO and its Flagship program, and works with State Government departments and the private sector to build research links.
UWA's Office of Industry and Innovation works with early-stage investors, venture capitalists and other commercial interests who are keen to commercialise UWA's research outcomes.
Under Dr Andy Sierakowski, the Office of Industry and Innovation facilitates contacts between industry and UWA researchers to explore collaborative research opportunities. The office also has an industry liaison role to help industry-sponsored research contracts.
UWA Science provides a wealth of expertise supported by specialist facilities, a willingness to listen to the needs of industry and a strong desire to build long-term relationships.
There are many opportunities for business and State government agencies to partner with The Faculty of Science.

The ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology (PEB) is funded by government and industry to provide knowledge, genetic tools and techniques that will lead to greater efficiency in how plant energy is used.
This can translate to economic and social benefits for Australia in areas including farming and agriculture, viticulture, food supply and fuel, and will help to combat some of the biggest issues we face today, including food security and the energy crisis.
We also provide all Australians with access to information and facilitate better understanding of the importance of plants and their incredible ability to capture, process and convert energy.
Collaborations with industry partners have already provided the following benefits:
The Centre is keen to engage with new industry partners where mechanistic analysis of plant function can enhance plant performance.
The Centre for Exploration Targeting (CET) is an applied research expertise that seeks to increase both the rate and quality of mineral discoveries without relying on substantial increases in exploration expenditure.
We recognise that recent profound changes in the mining industry have widened the gap between the outputs of current research and the technologies that industry needs to increase the discovery rate.
This gap provides a market opportunity for the Centre to produce applied research and innovation outcomes that deliver practical integrated targeting tools and techniques to improve the risk/reward ratio in exploration.
Our goal is to work with industry to develop more efficient exploration methods and to share our research with the business community to encourage and cultivate future economic growth.
The Centre for Forensic Science has forged links with state and national police services in Australia and leads the forensic community in many sciences such as forensic botany and entomology.
We offer a number of services to national and federal police and law enforcement agencies, industry organisations and the general public, both locally and internationally, including:
The Centre for Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis (CMCA) can assist your business with services ranging from simple testing to leveraged programs focusing on applied research and innovation.
Our expert technical and academic staff ensure that our facilities and expertise are used to achieve your goals.
Industry services include:
The Centre for Petroleum Geoscience and CO2 Sequestration(CPGCO2) is bringing together dedicated researchers, educators and industry partners to better explore and develop Australia’s hydrocarbon energy resources, and to sequester greenhouse gases like CO2 in an environmentally responsible manner.
The International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research(ICRAR) is a collaborative international centre that achieves research excellence in astronomical science and engineering.
ICRAR is promoting the availability and capacity of local industry to support the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) endeavourr as part of the Australian SKA Industry Consortium(ASKAIC)and in conjunction with CSIRO. ICRAR sees many links with industry increasing from its engineering and technology programs, and will be active in showcasing and growing local capabilities via a range of activities including:
