A strategic partnership for manufacturing and R&D between the University of Adelaide and Trajan Scientific and Medical shows how research institutions and manufacturers can work together to power the National Innovation and Science Agenda’s ideas boom.

Scientists from the University’s Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing and the School of Physical Sciences will work with Trajan to commercialise their research into products that ultimately benefit human health and wellbeing.

At the partnership launch at the University, the Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science, Christopher Pyne, said the national agenda would create a climate in which similar relationships would thrive.

“Collaborations like this produce links that will enable researchers to work with industry, in this case an advanced manufacture can produce tangible outcomes from their work through products with wide-ranging medical and scientific applications,” Mr Pyne said.

“It’s an exciting alliance that demonstrates what the Agenda will achieve by placing science and innovation at the heart of transforming Australia’s economy with world-leading science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) products and services.”

“This sort of manufacturing, of specialty glass products for the global science and medical equipment market, shows the importance of equipping Australians with appropriate job skills for the workforce of the 21st century.”
