Collaboration Opportunities

Collaboration within the DDRG

External Research

Out-sourced R&D can fill knowledge gaps within the organisation. Collaborative research projects provide access to DRRG’s research expertise and state-of-the-art facilities to carry out research specified by the organisation. This is a cost-effective pathway for expanding in-house capability where intellectual property can be accessed as part of a project (subject to agreed agreements). Out-sourced R&D also adds potential for longer-term strategic relationship between the client and DDRG. Through rigorous candidate screening including academic achievements and research expertise and interest, DDRG has high achieving graduates coming from all over the world.

Commercialisation

Due to Dr Seyfoddin’s previous commercialisation experience and the continuous partnership with AUT University’s commercialisation office, AUT Enterprises Limited, DDRG’s technologies are market-driven and have protection scopes that are commercially attractive.
