Foundation members of ANSTO’s deep technology incubator were recognised at today’s formal opening of the nandin facility at the Lucas Heights campus.

Representatives from the six member organisations – Enware, Crypses, Amentum, BioAir, Hyron Scientific and MAS Management Systems – were presented with ceremonial glass bricks as part of the invitation-only launch event, which drew almost 100 guests and featured a talk from special guest speaker Dr Markus Nordberg, the Head of Development and Innovation from CERN.

The nandin deep technology incubator is a full-service innovation hub that enables the best and the brightest minds to come together to foster innovation and change. It is for entrepreneurs, startups and small and medium businesses to embrace challenge-based innovation, design solutions and take science and technology-based products and services to market.

ANSTO’s CEO, Dr Adi Paterson, said he was excited to see what nandin can contribute to the domestic and international science community.

“I am proud to today officially open nandin – the first of its kind facility in Australia, enabling great minds tocollaborate, innovate and move closer to overcoming the challenges we currently face,” Dr Paterson said.

“Nandin will create linkages between a variety of organisations, academics and scientists, to utilise all the possibilities of nuclear sciences.”

The name nandin comes from the Dharawal language and means to look ahead. The hub is located on land believed to have been used as a meeting place for Aboriginal groups.

The formal opening of nandin is the first realisation of the ANSTO Innovation Precinct, which will foster close engagement between Australian scientists and both local and international businesses.
