ANSTO’s Graduate Institute, a component of our Innovation Precinct initiative, is positioned to become a global centre of excellence, responsible for developing and nurturing the next generation of Australian nuclear scientists and engineers.   It offers a unique value proposition – domestically and internationally. The Graduate Institute will see the best and brightest emerging scientific minds from universities given a development turbo-charge – working under the guidance of some of Australia’s current leading scientists and researchers, and given access to ANSTO’s national and landmark infrastructure and industry partners.
Helping the next generation of scientists shape industries of the future
The Graduate Institute will connect academic, applied research and industry sectors in a way that will provide real-world and first-hand experiences to students as working scientists. There will be a strong emphasis placed on industry translation throughout the student engagement. Students will be provided coaching, tools and guidance to develop entrepreneurial capabilities. Specialist and multifaceted training will be provided to deepen the learning experience and management capabilities of students across areas including:
  • business models
  • supply chain optimisation
  • funding and finance management
  • marketing
  • leadership
  • Intellectual Property protection
Through the Graduate Institute, students will also be directly exposed to industry partners involved in the two other core components of the ANSTO Innovation Precinct at Lucas Heights; the Technology Park and the deep technology incubator, nandin.
