Accelerating Australia is a national consortium of biomedical research institutions, universities, healthcare providers and companies established in 2017 to support cross-sector, multi-disciplined collaboration and to empower future biomedical leaders.


Our approach

Great ideas are plentiful, but knowing how to turn that idea into something tangible is difficult. Innovators often struggle because the nature of innovation requires working in unchartered territory. Accelerating Australia works as an independent broker and advisor to create better flow from idea to market by providing a national support system for biomedical innovators and entrepreneurs. Our focus is on the time between research and commercialisation — the gap where innovators are most at risk of failing. With a goal of developing talent, we bring together a nationwide consortium of universities, healthcare providers, research institutions and companies to create an environment where biomedical innovators are fully empowered to drive their idea or invention forward across the entire innovation chain, improving access to all the necessary resources needed for success. The resulting innovations provide patient benefits and assist in growing the biomedical industry and future workforce in Australia.

"I have gained invaluable networks with very special people and my greatest lesson has been conscious empowerment – belief in oneself, enabled by the support of great individuals who have taught me the courage to take action."
