Webinar: ARC Linkages for Innovative Small Businesses
May 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEST
The Australian Research Council’s (ARC) Linkage funding schemes strengthen the nation’s innovation system and with innovation systems internationally. By supporting the development of partnerships, the ARC encourages the transfer of skills, knowledge and ideas as a basis for securing commercial and other benefits of research.
In this webinar, the ARC’s Dr Fiona Cameron, Senior Executive Director, Biological Sciences and Biotechnology, will describe the ARC Linkage Program options for small businesses to form research collaborations with higher education researchers and other sectors in the national innovation system, including industry, community organisations and other publicly funded research agencies. In particular, Fiona will identify opportunities for SMEs to collaborate on research projects funded under the ARC’s Linkage Projects scheme and also the Industrial Transformation Research Hubs and Training Centres schemes.

Prior to this, Dr Cameron led the Innovation & Consulting Unit at the University of Western Sydney (UWS) as the Associate Director. In this role, she worked closely with the University Executive, academics, active researchers and the University Research Office at UWS to identify opportunities to protect, develop and commercialise Intellectual Property and to build relationships with Industry and Government.
Between 1986 and 2007 Dr Cameron worked at the CSIRO, where she was appointed a Principal Research Scientist of its Division of Molecular Science, and a member of the executive team of the CSIRO National Research Food Futures Flagship. Dr Cameron was also a key developer of the CSIRO Nanotechnology Centre. Active in gene control research, Dr Cameron’s work at CSIRO included the development of molecules for better gene delivery into cells and gene therapy.
Being heavily involved in commercially funded medical research, Dr Cameron’s most recent publications take the form of a suite of patents.
Dr Cameron originally trained at the University of Sydney and the Australian National University. She was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy in 1990 from Macquarie University, having studied the regulation of gene control using engineered ribonucleic acids.
