Collaborative Research & Innovation

AVS supports and strengthens the commercial research and innovation collaborations that deliver AVR science and innovation for local industry impact.

AVS’ strategic priorities for managing commercial research collaborations are to ensure:

  • AVS provides an effective, professional, commercial interface between AVR and private sector collaborators.
  • Partnering, IP and legal risks of AVR research collaborations with the private sector are appropriately assessed, balanced and managed.
  • Commercial research agreements are negotiated and supported in an expert, professional and responsive manner.
  • Commercial research joint ventures are appropriately structured and governed to minimise risks and maximise economic benefits for the State.

AVS always seeks to manage its commercial research and innovation collaborations consistent with the objectives of AVR, the Department’s IP Management Principles and Victorian Public Sector Values.
