The KCA awards celebrate world-class research commercialisation that turns brilliant ideas into products and services to help humanity. This award focusses on the partnership between research and industry to successfully translate science into commercial outcomes.
“Australian research is among the best in the world, but it takes skilled commercialisation professionals to translate it into valuable products to benefit society,” Chair of Knowledge Commercialisation Australia, Dr Erin Rayment, says. “The KCA Awards recognise those who bridge the gap between research and industry.”
Chrysos Chairman Rob Adamson said it is an honour to be recognised for the combination of excellent science from the CSIRO blended with the deep industry knowledge and dynamic commercial capabilities of RFC Ambrian. Chrysos represents the first partnership between RFC Ambrian and the CSIRO, followed by NextOre which was formed in 2017.
