Project Management of Commercialisation for Government

Government and public sector agencies potentially have a range of intellectual property (IP) that has real or perceived value. Such IP can be shared with other government agencies or industry to generate value. Benefits to government include a reduction of cost due to newly realised efficiencies, a potential revenue return, and enhanced public value or community outcomes.

Commercialisation in government is the process of providing the rights to a third party to use IP owned by government. This generally involves licensing contracts to formalise agreements to the exchange of such IP, and rights to use it.

Over the last six years, the AIC has achieved a track record of significant experience in assisting government and public sector agencies with commercialisation.
