Getting Your Ducks in a Row: Preparing for Meaningful Engagement with Industry
When navigating the journey to product commercialisation, knowing the “who, how, when and why” of engagement with industry is integral to the successful translation of a novel research endeavour into a viable product with good market fit. Gaining a deeper understanding of the product development ecosystem, and how to engage with it, will help you better adapt your technology for a design-led approach to commercialisation.
Join our leading experts from university and research, industry-leading product design and commercialisation to learn about some of the practical realities and how you can prepare to engage effectively with industry to succeed. Commercialisation Australia will also provide an update on their industry support programs and insights into what makes an innovative project attractive to them.

BrisScience at home: Bite-sized science – showcasing UQ’s 3MT finalists
In March 2006, BrisScience burst onto the scene with the aim to share important and topical aspects of science with the broader community. Fast-forward almost 15 years and BrisScience has helped inform, excite and inspire thousands of people from Brisbane and around the world.
This month at BrisScience, we’re bring these two worlds together. You’ll hear from eight of this year’s Faculty of Science 3MT finalists, sharing a 3-minute-summary of their 80,000 word thesis. With topics ranging from plant diversity and drug discovery to echidna poo, prepare for an outstanding and highly entertaining array of bite-sized science from UQ PhD candidates.
The ARC CoE for Plant Success in Nature and Agriculture
The ARC CoE for Plant Success in Nature and Agriculture will make significant advances in the emerging fields of evolutionary systems biology (how plants work and evolve) and predictive analytics (mathematics) to deliver novel strategies for improving ecosystem management, crop resilience and yield. Parallel advances in legal and social frameworks will modernise outdated precedents in these areas, enabling greater scope for commercialisation and public uptake. Through strong industrial and global partnerships and interdisciplinary collaborations, mentoring and communication, the Centre will transform plant science for the next generation. This presentation will provide an overview of the Centre’s activities and inclusive approach.

Registration is essential and only open to LSQ Members. Once registered we will keep you up to date via email with the virtual event process leading into the event.
Tracking stress remotely via wool cortisol and SMART tags
Livestock productivity is guided by traditional management practices to enhance animal performance. Physiological biomarkers and remote sensors-based technology can be useful to track livestock. In this QAAFI seminar, I present the outcomes of a research trial to discuss how shearing frequency influences the activity budget of maternal ewes measured using SMART ear tags and using wool glucocorticoid (stress hormone) to detect the changes in physiological stress during gestation. Our research work demonstrates that wool hormone monitoring and SMART sensor technology can be employed to monitor the performance and well-being of sheep to guide best practice, animal welfare, and sustainable production outcomes.
