ON Prime

Curious about how research can make an impact? ON Prime is a free, nine-week program that helps publicly funded research teams understand the potential of their research and their translation options.

With a pool of mentors and advisors to guide participants, ON Prime focuses on the skills and confidence needed to undertake customer discovery and market validation. Teams are supported in building evidence of the impact of their research, so they can better communicate it and attract the resources needed.
