There is considerable pressure on Australian universities and research institutions to achieve substantial increases in their commercialisation performance. Ensuring access to and leverage from publicly funded innovation is one of their central goals for intellectual property management.

Our comprehensive range of services is designed to assess your technology, provide direction, justify spending and achieve the best overall outcome possible. We deal with all levels of commercial development, from early assessment of new technologies through to marketing of established technologies.


TMV+'s Early Market Assessment Program (EMAP) is crucial for making “go” or “no-go” decisions regarding the market prospects of new technologies. We have an extensive international network we use to assess your early-stage technologies, allowing you to make decisions on the direction of your R&D. EMAP provides clients with resources and capabilities in support of their commercialisation efforts. In collaboration with technology managers, TMV+ will engage with researchers to enhance the commercial potential of their technology. This early engagement provides insight into technology benefits and potential value while identifying gaps in market knowledge that need to be addressed. This leads to an understanding of pre-market feasibility, a process established through preliminary discussions with targeted national and international companies to determine demand and technical and/or commercial benchmarks required for a potential commercial engagement.
