$50,000 given to business research
THE State Government has awarded Southern Cross University $50,000 in funding to help researchers develop better connections with the business community.
The funding is from Round Two of the State Government’s $1.4 million TechVouchers program.
Labor Duty MLC for Lismore, Peter Primrose, said the funding would support a new ‘connector’ role within the university to link business people with the university’s researchers.
“The new connector position can help businesses enhance productivity and competitiveness by giving them better access to research that can improve their products and services.
“The program also helps our knowledge sector tap into potential financial sources, while gaining practical knowledge that can enable researchers to bring their ideas to market,” Mr Primrose said.
