About RC&T3 Program

RC&T3 is an eight-week intensive research impact coaching program for UniSA research teams. It equips researchers with the tools and skills they need to create impact through partnering with industry, government and community groups.  The program is delivered online and consists of cohort-based workshops, one-on-one coaching sessions, and targeted mentoring with industry mentors with a breadth and depth of relevant industry experience. Additionally, teams will be supported to develop relationships with external stakeholders and research translation partners.  The program will culminate with an in-person presentation event.

More Information About RC&T3

Who is the program for?

The program is for UniSA research teams with a project that has significant translation and/or commercialisation potential as identified by UniSA Ventures and supported by the corresponding academic unit’s Dean of Research. 

Each team may include, for example, research leads (C-E level), leaders passionate about creating research impact, plus 1-3 postdocs or research fellows. 

What will I get from participating in the program?

Participation typically leads to one or more of these outcomes for your research project: 

  • Clear, shared team impact goals for the project
  • Broader support for your project and its impact from UniSAV, your Centre and academic unit
  • Identification of the industry sectors most likely to be “early adopters” of your research
  • New industry, government and/or community partners, leading to new research and/or translation funding
  • A decision to re-orientate the project/research direction to achieve more impact, expand or even to discontinue it and refocus on other projects with higher impact potential.

The program equips you with:

  • Skills to articulate the value of your research and initiate new relationships for research collaborations 
  • Enhanced skills to identify, engage and develop relationships with potential early adopters of your research, and to develop targeted engagement plans
  • An expanded network of contacts with potential industry, government and community partners 
  • Skills to uncover the problems that potential partners want to solve, and how your research helps them.

FAQs

Q: I’m worried that my research project is at the wrong stage for me to benefit from this program.  

A: The program is for teams who believe their research project has potential to create commercial returns and/or social good, and whose project is ongoing (more than an idea) or complete.  You don’t need to have a product!

 

Q: Because of other university commitments, I can’t attend all the program sessions.  Can I still apply?

A: Yes!  If at least one of your team-mates can attend all the program sessions, you’re eligible to apply and you’ll benefit from the program.
