Help for Monash researchers and students

Monash University is actively focused on industry engagement and commercialisation of intellectual property that will ultimately benefit society.

For more information and our Invention Disclosure Form, staff and students can visit our intranet page.

Getting Started

Your primary contact for industry engagement is your Faculty Industry Engagement team.


Monash Innovation is the technology transfer office that specialises in commercialisation of Monash research, with dedicated field-specific commercialisation professionals.

The Generator assists entrepreneurial start-ups.

Intellectual Property

Monash Innovation has in-house patent attorneys to assist with protection and registration of Monash IP.

Contracts and Tenders

Contact your Faculty team in the first place for assistance with Research Services Agreements, Consultancies, Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs) and Confidentiality Disclosure Agreements (CDAs); they may refer you directly to the Contracts Management Office (Monash authcate required).

Accessing Grants and Funding

Check whether your faculty has an MRO contact – if not, contact the Monash Research Office directly for assistance with grant applications. A range of funding opportunities is available on our Funding website and intranet page.
