WHY APPLY?

As a successful applicant you will have three minutes to tell your story. What are you researching and why? Why does the world need to know? What impact will your research have? Being part of IMPACT7 will help you amplify your research!

  • Receive meaningful feedback and guidance from potential collaborators, customers, partners, mentors and investors
  • Ask the universe and IMPACT7’s influential audience of curious and passionate people from industry, government, for-purpose organisations and media figures for what you need – whether that be towards partnerships, commercialisation, investment, or expansion
  • Gain valuable experience as you learn to share your message with a wider audience
  • Apply for complimentary travel to and from Melbourne with IMPACT7 Travel Grants
  • Entry is quick and free

If selected, you’ll be supported to present with a tailored workshop, ‘PitchCamp - powered by ON’, helping you hone your 3 minutes to make the greatest possible impact. PitchCamp will be held on Wednesday 8 August 2018, the day before IMPACT7, in Melbourne. Your travel grant will cover access to and attendance at the workshop.

Fast-tracked entry for one team to ‘ON Accelerate5 Selection Bootcamp’
One successful team will receive fast-tracked entry to ‘Selection Bootcamp’ for the next round of the national science and technology accelerator, ‘ON, powered by CSIRO‘.

Held in late November 2018, ‘ON Selection Bootcamp’ brings together the best and brightest research teams from across the country for two days to vie for their position in the next round of the national accelerator, ON Accelerate5.

ON Accelerate5 is the 12 week, full-time accelerator experience that equips research teams with the skills, expertise and connections they’ll require to fast-track their innovation from lab to reality.
