Thirds Model

For researchers not seeking an active role, or if your technology will be licensed.

You (and your collaborating researchers) will receive one third of the benefits, after costs are removed, at the point the venture is sold.

If you choose the Thirds Model, you’ll get:
  • IP protection and management.
  • Identification of partners, investors and start-up team members.
  • Legal establishment of a new company.
  • Shares held on your behalf.
  • Contract research opportunities for your research lab.
  • Access to PSAF non-dilutive funding.


What we need from you

What we need from you:

Your time to support the development of the IP.

Access to your research facilities to validate aspects of the IP.

Your availability to front aspects of the commercialisation.

This option may suit you if:

You'd prefer to focus on your research.

You'd prefer not to take a risk on the technology.

You want to stay at the University.
