Viclink is Victoria University’s commercialisation office. Our role is to add value to the University by helping researchers to transform their discoveries into marketable products or services that have real benefit to society.

Viclink is of the University (it’s a wholly-owned subsidiary), for the University. We provide a valuable – and did we mention free? – service to Victoria’s researchers to help them launch inventions efficiently and successfully into the world where they can do the most good. We also encourage and support Victoria's students to be innovative; after all, today's students are tomorrow's entrepreneurs.

So whether you're staff or a student, if you’ve got a great idea that you think might have commercial potential, let us know straight away. We can provide expert assistance to help you protect and market that idea, and develop relationships with industry to identify the best possible commercial partner for you. We’re also pretty good at attracting financial investment for projects so that you can keep on doing what you do best – research.

Or, if you're a business looking to solve an R&D problem, Viclink is your gateway to accessing the wealth of knowledge and resource held by New Zealand’s most research intensive university (ranked first among New Zealand universities in 2013).
