DST Group would like to bring to your attention the opportunity to participate in the next ON Prime:Defence program. ON Prime:Defence is a part-time pre-accelerator experience designed for innovative science and technology that has the potential to deliver real impact for Australia's national security and defence.

Powered by CSIRO, and delivered in partnership with DST Group, ON Prime:Defence gives researchers a unique opportunity to fast-track their science or technology proposition with expert guidance from those who've been there and done it before. Teams will be guided by experienced facilitators and will have access to both Defence mentors and the ON mentor network.

We're looking for innovative science and technology that has the potential to deliver game-changing capabilities for Australia's national security and defence. Teams working on technologies that address the following priority areas with the potential for dual-use applications in the commercial market are highly encouraged to apply:

                - Integrated intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance

                - Space capabilities

                - Enhanced human performance

                - Medical countermeasure products

                - Multidisciplinary material sciences

                - Quantum technologies

                - Trusted autonomous systems

                - Cyber

                - Advanced sensors, hypersonics and directed energy capabilities

There is no cost to participate, and all IP and equity remains the property of the participating team or their sponsoring institute. The program is open to teams with at least one research employee from CSIRO, Australian universities or Australia's publicly funded research agencies (PFRA's).

Applications will be open from 3rd July. For further information contact your university ON Program coordinator, the CSIRO ON team (http://oninnovation.com.au) or email Greg Denehy (gregory.denehy@dst.defence.gov.au).
