Whether you’re in industry or a researcher in academia or a research institution PlatformConnect is a great resource to find expertise and the most appropriate technology for your project.

If you’re a little unsure of how best to achieve the outcome you need, PlatformConnect, the new FREE online tool enables researchers to post jobs and seek proposals from a broad range of facilities and then decide on the one to work with.

By posting your project then having a discussion with facility personnel you may find new ways of designing the experiment, ways to get better data or information or information about the technologies available to achieve your desired research outcome.

All 140+ VPTN facilities are accessible through PlatformConnect  and can potentially be accessed using Victorian Government Technology and Innovation Vouchers.

Once you’ve created a free PlatformConnect account, there are three easy steps:

  1. Post the project to automatically notify a set of Providers (VPTN facilities).
  2. Receive responses from Providers who can help.
  3. Choose a Provider and get started.
