Do you have a game-changing idea?

ANU Physics has partnered with the ANU MakerSpace, Wizer and Compton School to deliver KINETIC – an open search for game-changing new ideas.

WHO. The search is open to all ANU undergrads, postgrads, staff and alumni.

HOW. You can join the search by pitching an idea, or by joining a team working on an idea, or by voting on the ideas presented and giving feedback to the teams. Simply click the 'register' button above and you'll see the teams that have already started to post their ideas and are gaining support. 

WHAT. Ideas can be anything in the arts, design, physics or engineering domain. They can have commercial or social applications. They can be systems, devices, materials, or processes. Surprise us!

WHEN: The deadline to submit your idea will be midnight (AEDT) Wednesday 29th March 2023 when the first round of voting will begin on our site. If you make it through the first round you'll be notified on Wednesday 19th April 2023 and then supported to hone and develop your idea and your pitch.

The second round of online voting will begin on Wednesday 24th May 2023 and close Wednesday 14th June 2023 when the finalists who will proceed to the live pitching stage will be revealed. The final live pitch will go ahead at ANU on Friday 23rd June 2023

WIN! There will be 4 awards each valued at $50,000. Winners will have the chance to develop their ideas using the world-class facilities at ANU Physics and MakerSpace.
