The National Survey for Research Commercialisation (NSRC) is Australia’s only data collection to determine the research performance of the publicly funded research system. The NSRC data-set is extremely useful to those assessing the performance of Australia’s research system.


In 2014-2015, the NSRC was reviewed with a vision to strengthen and streamline the data collection, and to ensure the survey aligns with current and emerging objectives of research commercialisation in Australia and abroad.


In an effort to remove the burden from researchers and take advantage of corporate knowledge within IP Australia, our Patent Analytics Hub was engaged to extract the IP data of the survey recipients. The work of the Patent Analytics Hub, in collaboration with the Department of Industry Innovation and Science, has also improved the accuracy of data collection.
