Division of Enterprise
Welcome to the Division of Enterprise

The Division was created in August 2016 and has carriage of the initiatives relating to "Knowledge Exchange for Social Progress and Economic Prosperity" in UNSW's 2025 Strategy, facilitating engagement across industry, business and government. 

The Division seeks to support UNSW in its goal to become the “Stanford of Australia” by:

  • Building a culture of knowledge exchange between our researchers and the end users of our research, so that together we can transform societies worldwide. [UNSW Knowledge Exchange, Unisearch Consulting and Expert Opinion Services]
  • Developing successful staff and student entrepreneurs informed by their social contact with the world.  [Entrepreneurship@UNSW]
  • Constructing a world-class innovation precinct bringing together global industry, academics and the community to deliver economic return and benefit to society. [Torch Innovation Precinct]

We will know that we have been successful when we have:

  • Doubled our 2015 knowledge exchange revenue by 2020
  • Launched 100 start-ups in a calendar year from UNSW
  • Built the first Torch Innovation Precinct outside China

The Division also coordinates UNSW’s broad government relations and higher education policy work for innovation and other areas.

    eReuse Donates 20 Computers to Kinchela Boys Home Corp

    eReuse, an Arc program to refurbish and donate unwanted computers from around campus, has recently made its second donation to Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation, an organisation that supports members of the Stolen Generations, their families and communities.

    eReuse have now donated 20 computers to the Centre for use by community members to stay connected, complete online education programs, research, publish and take care of personal admin.

    Emma Baylis-Chan of eReuse came across Kinchela when researching Ability Link providers program. When she contacted the Centre, they were hoping to set up a computer room but weren't sure how to find low cost hardware.

    Of the donation, the Centre's Development Manager Tiffany McComsey said; “our organisation supports stolen generations survivors, their descendants and immediate family members.

    Having computers available to these individuals has meant that we have reduced their experience of social isolation and increased their access to government services and education."

    Not only did eReuse donate the hardware, but they also helped to get the new computer room up and running!
