The Australian Biosecurity Cooperative Research Centre for Emerging Infectious Disease (Australian Biosecurity CRC) is a national organisation, which is engaged in research and development with the objective of the protection of people, animals and the environment from infectious disease and other biological threats. The organisation developed a range of innovative methods of detection and protection from such diseases as SARS, bird flu, foot-and-mouth disease to name just a few. Its research has brought about $228 million in estimated benefits.
The AIC successfully conducted a Commercialisation Bootcamp which equipped the participants with valuable skills and knowledge regarding the commercialisation of ideas, IP protection and recognition of commercial potential of research.
