The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation has formally launched the nandin Deep Technology Incubator, a full-service innovation hub, aimed at enabling the best and the brightest minds to come together to foster innovation and change.

The opening of nandin is the first realisation of much broader plans for the ANSTO Innovation Precinct which will foster close engagement between Australian scientists and both local and international businesses.  

Nandin is a deep technology incubator for entrepreneurs, start-ups and small and medium businesses to embrace challenge-based innovation, design solutions and take science and technology-based products and services to market.

ANSTO chief executive Dr Adi Paterson said he was excited to see what nandin could contribute to the domestic and international science community.

“I am proud to today officially open nandin – the first of its kind facility in Australia, enabling great minds to collaborate, innovate and move closer to overcoming the challenges we currently face," he said.

“Nandin will create linkages between a variety of organisations, academics and scientists, to utilise all the possibilities of nuclear sciences.”

The name nandin comes from the Dharawal language and means to look ahead, and the hub is located on land believed to have been used as a meeting place for Aboriginal groups.

Dr Paterson was joined at the launch by Dr Markus Nordberg, head of Development and Innovation from CERN – an organisation established in 1954 with a mission to perform world-class research and unite people from all over the world to push the frontiers of science and technology, for the benefit of all.

“It has been a privilege to have Dr Nordberg here today to share his insights on IdeaSquare, a space that brings people together to generate new ideas, the concept from which nandin was born,” said Dr Paterson.

“International partnerships with organisations like CERN provide invaluable global connections that will help us to find innovative ideas and solutions to solve problems sooner and with more efficiency.

“The ANSTO Innovation Precinct will deliver research solutions for industry to enhance innovation, focused on the areas of health, advanced manufacturing, industry, agriculture, food and nutrition.

“It will position Southern Sydney at the heart of innovation in Australia, and as nandin is so closely connected to our local community – providing invaluable access to world class researchers and technology.”
