发电机的实验室

Connecting industry problems with research focused solutions

What is the 发电机的实验室?

The 发电机的实验室 connects SMEs, industry and government enterprises with UOW researchers and other stakeholders to solve their innovation problems by using disruptive technologies and collaborative people power.

发电机的实验室 is an event-based platform which encourages the development of new products, processes and capabilities for all involved through knowledge sharing in a participatory environment. Its main aim is to increase the regions innovation capacity through 合作伙伴hips and 协作.

Australian businesses that engage in collaborative innovation with research organisations such as UOW are 242% more likely to report increases in productivity, compared to non-innovating businesses. The timeframe of each 发电机的实验室 project varies between a few hours through to a year. 所有 commercial rights for the intellectual property generated through the project will reside with the industry 合作伙伴 and not UOW.

An example of an ongoing collaborative research project that has evolved from a 发电机的实验室 event saw SMEs and UOW researchers working with an aged-care provider and a wool manufacturer to develop wearable devices in fabric socks to monitor the health of patients.

The reach of the 发电机的实验室s project has already extended to Nowra and SMEs from South Western Sydney are encouraged to become involved.

Whats the process?

The GeneratorLab consists of four distinct stages

Pre-Lab

目的: To define 发电机的实验室 problem and gather background research. The solution to the problem must be a product,
service or capability that is new to the world.

要求: Invest time into process and background research.

结果: Invest time into process and background research.

冲刺

目的: Collaborate to generate potential solutions, prioritize solutions and develop scope of works to research solution.

要求: Openness, trust and commitment into 协作.

结果: 项目 scope to develop solution written.

项目

目的: Develop solution to problem through collaborative research project.

要求: Financial investment from companies in collaborative research project. There is a funding pool of up to $135,000 to
match the SMEs investment in the research project dollar for dollar (subject to eligibility of company and project). 所有
commercial rights for the intellectual property generated through the project will reside with the industry 合作伙伴.

结果: New product, service or capability to solve problem.
