UQ Entrepreneurial Scholar Program

Invest in the future of scientific innovation

With an urgent global need to translate science to business, the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology has established an expanded UQ Entrepreneurial Scholar Program, in partnership with the Liveris Academy.
This ground-breaking initiative recognises industry demand for job-ready people able to apply game-changing and commercial solutions to industry-wide challenges.
With courses in entrepreneurship and leadership and a three-month industry placement, it equips our graduates for leadership roles in industry, government and research. 
We invite industry to partner in this program. By partnering with us you will be able to:
  • Develop a talent pipeline of future employees
  • Attend industry networking events
  • Access dedicated support staff to ensure PhD success
  • Contribute to the next generation of scientific entrepreneurs
