Become a CERIan

“If today were the last day of your life, would you want to do what you’re about to do today?”

Steve Jobs

We offer a creative environment for learning and development, encouraging our CERIans to come together and share ideas or inspiration. Our goal is to assist you in realising your full potential, through:

  • The translation of your research through commercialisation
  • Collisions with like-minded individuals
  • Introducing you to new skills
  • Equipping you to establish your first startup
  • Inspiring you to view yourself and your work differently


Passion, creativity and dedication are essential elements for success at CERI. Having an idea for a startup is not a prerequisite, whatever your expertise or experience you will have something to bring to the table.


To be eligible to apply for the CERI Programme you must be affiliated with WA university or research institute, at Honours level or above. All fields and disciplines are accepted.


Applying is a competitive process as places are very limited. Our Scientific and Investment Advisory Panel will review all applications and conduct interviews with potential CERIans.
