CSIRO's ON Program

CSIRO’s ON program is Australia’s national science and technology accelerator, aimed at supporting teams of researchers from Australia’s publicly funded research organisations to take their ideas and research out of the lab and into the world through products and services through commercialisation.

Calls for applications are now closed.

Are you working on promising research that will help Australia tap into the into high-growth global protein markets? Or on ways to improve drought resilience via on-farm, regional community, or policy solutions?

CSIRO’s ON Prime can help! Purpose built for researchers, this virtually delivered, hands-on learning program provides you with the skills needed to take your research to the next level through customer discovery activities.

This round of ON Prime is aligned to CSIRO’s Future Protein and Drought Resilience missions. We are particularly interested in teams who are working on:

• scalable, innovative protein production systems, creative re-uses of food, that would otherwise go to waste, as high value protein products; the modulation of high protein crops to deliver unique flavour and nutritional profiles and modified texture/functionality

• developing adaptations and options that build knowledge and understanding of future risk and uncertainty; and build individual and regional capacity to plan for future droughts through new adaptations and options that will help manage through future droughts and recover faster from drought.
