The University of Melbourne has launched a new campaign showing how problems are solved using world-class leading research.

The ‘Made Possible, Together’ campaign will run until April 2022, and will focus on emerging research in biomedical innovation and climate, including energy, water, agriculture, environment and infrastructure.

A new ‘Climate Hub’ microsite will be the campaign’s centrepiece, and will showcase the depth and breadth of the University’s climate research, focusing on capability, collaboration, and big ideas.

The Hub will also explore a variety of topics from Indigenous land management to the latest in clean technologies, and biodiversity preservation.

The University of Melbourne has now invested over $5.3 million in research projects and start-ups, with more than 180 of those starts-ups raising over $100 million in funding and generated over $120 million in revenue.

126 Intellectual Property (IP) disclosures were filed last year, with 368 overall in the past four years.

The university has also supported research development for two major companies that debuted on the ASX this year, Rubicon and Clarity Pharmaceuticals.

Siobhan Forbes, executive director of university communications and marketing, said the ‘Made Possible, Together’ campaign is an important message from the University of Melbourne.

“It is not just desirable to translate research into genuine societal impact, it is our duty to do so when the opportunity arises,’’ she said.

“We are proud of the examples which demonstrate how we successfully work with industry to create innovative outcomes for the greater good.

“Including the Epi-Minder, a device to detect and eventually predict epileptic seizures, and the McMonty Hood, a personal ventilation hood for hospital beds which helps contain droplet spread of COVID-19 in intensive care units.

“We hope this campaign inspires new partnerships which will make new things possible and leave a positive impact on the world.”
