How can we help you with R&D and Commercialisation?

R&D Program Design

Start R&D and commercialisation in your organisation.

If you have a vision for how you want to invest in a new R&D program, we can help. Whether it is a strategic enterprise initiative, R&D center or institute, great program design turns the vision into a reality that delivers sustained value back into the organisation. Talk to us about setting up your R&D and Commercialisation program for success and getting the critical first building blocks done right.

Boost your existing R&D and Commercialisation program.

Are you achieving impact and outcomes from your investment into R&D and commercialisation? Do you have the data needed to make decisions? Do you know what ‘great’ looks like? Is the market and supply chain ready for deployment? We will work with you to understand what’s needed to boost your R&D and Commercialisation program so you can focus on achieving impact and commercial outcomes.

R&D Project Design

New product and service development

Turning ideas and research outcomes into new products and services is a complex process. It is even more difficult when targeting new customer segments, engaging with new supply chains or using new business models or sales strategies. Impact Innovation uses the expertise of its team and award-winning decision support tools to fast-track and de-risk new product and service development.

High impact R&D project design

Designing high impact R&D projects requires a considered approach to the information required by relevant parties such as commercial partners, industry partners or funding providers. If stakeholders can’t make decisions based on the information on-hand, it’s likely the research will gather dust. We excel at decision-making support. Talk to us about how we can help you help others make impactful decisions.
