Access opportunities, stand out

Halve the time you spend looking for industry partners, access opportunities and grants for your researchers.

Stand out, connect and engage industry innovation and research projects.

  • Do you find translation for you, your staff or colleagues challenging?  

  • Finding it hard to acquire funding and grants?

  • Does it feel like hard to work trying to connect with Industry?

  • Wonder if your work has translational relevance?

  • Sick of the lottery that is ARC and NHRMC discovery and project grants?

ARC Grant success rates are now approaching 20%. NHMRC success rates are even lower, and getting close to 10%. Conversely ARC Linkage grant and NHRMC Project Grant success rates are closer to 40% (and rising).

In our experience the biggest barrier to a successful Linkage or Partnership grant is not a good project - its good partners. A major barrier to getting good partners is fear - fear of having ideas on display that others might take apart. Fear that the work does not have industry relevance. Being fearful is no longer an option. Research cannot be sustained with lotto like chances of funding. Research can and should involve accessing industry partners who are looking for you.

LinkedIn is a powerful tool to be able to access industry funding.


There are people out there who want to work with you.

You just need to make it easy.

LinkedIn and the need to manage your online personal brand are creating lots of questions in universities and industry. The challenge is knowing what to do with it and what to say to people.

Many see an opportunity for LinkedIn but are not sure how to maximise it. They have seen people try and fail with other social media such as twitter and facebook and now worry about LinkedIn. However, there are massive opportunities - particularly with the National Innovation and Science Agenda - to work with industry for mutual benefit, not to mention increasing funding imperatives to find industry partners.

Maximise the opportunities for funding and collaboration and make translation easy.

Make a difference and have your research make the impact on the world.

LinkedIn is a powerful tool for researchers to access industry opportunities as these decision-makers are not necessarily on Researchgate.

Professor Matthew Perugini, La Trobe University

"The 'LinkedIn MasterClass on Research Translation' facilitated by Jane Anderson and Dr Richard Huysmans from RAVEN was superb. Highly recommend this to all Australian researchers looking to reach out to the world. Great job Jane and Richard."

Amee Morgans, RDNS

"LinkedIn has meant we now have higher quality content, less sharing of others and more of our original work. We're getting more comments and more replies to our enquiries. We also have more gravitas by having our LinkedIn profiles professionally written. The first impressions are now on LinkedIn. We're finding the middle ground easier and it's helping to set clearer expectations."
