  • university-business collaboration,
  • innovation through collaborative partnerships,
  • business investment in university R&D,

B/HERT is the only national organisation with members who are leaders in tertiary education, business, industry and research institutions.

B/HERT, established in 1990, is a not-for-profit organisation.



A repositioned economy based on structural change enabling knowledge/IP translation and not restricted by geography is an outcome that will serve Australia well as we move further into the 21st century. And so it is that the contributors for this edition of the B/HERT News bring a focus to initiatives that will be a part of this journey.

For over 50 years, Swinburne has been partnering with leading organisations to offer students authentic workplace experiences.
