Commercialisation is the process of developing an idea through research to a point where it is ready to be sold in the marketplace.

Medical Research Commercialisation Fund
The Queensland Government is involved in the Medical Research Commercialisation Fund, which provides dedicated investment funding to support the commercialisation of early-stage medical research discoveries.
The fund (together with companies, OneVentures, Brandon Capital Partners and HealthCare Ventures) has made one of Australia's largest ever investments in a biotechnology start-up company. Queensland's Vaxxas received $15 million to further develop a revolutionary needle-free vaccine delivery system.
