Neurosciences Victoria is dedicated to the continued development of the world-class neuroscience cluster in Melbourne, Australia, encouraging international collaborations and partnerships leading to strategic investment in the gap between academic discovery research and commercial exploitation and development.
The principal products and services of NSV relate to pre-clinical and clinical neuroscience expertise in pharmaceuticals, diagnostics and medical devices relevant to the global marketplace which reside within its Member organisations. The major product opportunities relate to contract services in which revenue is generated from external customers who access the skills and infrastructure within the Member organisations.
By providing focus and direction for neuroscience research and through the creation and development of strong industry partnerships, NSV provides a unique and effective interface between neuroscientists, the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, investors and public funding bodies. NSV typically acts as a conduit for external customers for large scale, multi-institute programs and can streamline generation and management of commercial agreements. This ability to act as a 'one-stop shop' is one of the key competitive advantages of NSV, both within Australia and internationally.
NSV also provides advice and leadership to other business activities within its membership such as providing high-level management and assistance in financing activities to spin out companies.
