What we do

We support Macquarie University academics in bringing their expertise to the market. By facilitating the process of engaging in consulting, research or training projects outside the university, academics can focus on their core area of expertise. We work closely and successfully with a range of industries, with federal, state & local governments and NGO's.

Our Goal

Our goal is to lift the profile of commercial research, consulting and collaborations at the University. Funds generated through AccessMQ are fed back into the University to fund further research with Research and Commercial Services revenue contributing more than $10 Million per year.
