Our Data Theme Leader Dr Zhitao Xiong will be attending the Research to Startup: A different road to impact event.

Think your research could have global impact? Now what?

Hear from researchers who have pursued a different path to gain global impact for their work - building a successful startup business.

Uniseed - a partner of the University of Sydney - provides investment funding to commercialise research-developed technologies that bring significant impact to communities. Uniseed has brought together a panel of researchers turned entrepreneurs that will share the highs and lows of their experience - from discussions with the Tech Transfer Office, leaving the university (or not!), raising capital, forming teams and being in business.

Every journey is different, but all have been fulfilling.

The panel will be moderated by Tim Dodd. Tim is The Australian's Higher Education Editor. He has over 25 years experience as a journalist covering a wide variety of areas in public policy, economics, politics and foreign policy, including reporting from the Canberra press gallery and four years based in Jakarta as South East Asia correspondent for The Australian Financial Review. He was named 2014 Higher Education Journalist of the Year by the National Press Club.
