CDU Enterprise - Darwin Innovation Hub

CDU Enterprise

The Darwin Innovation Hub is partnered with Charles Darwin University (CDU) to assist CDU researchers in commercialising their research projects.

We provide researchers with business advice from leading experts and access to grants, incentives and venture capital. Our venue is equipped with a high tech Data Lab and Research & Development Facility.


Data Lab and R&D Site

Through our partnership with Charles Darwin University and AARNet, the Darwin Innovation Hub operates a high tech Data Lab and Research & Development Facility located in the DIH headquarters on Smith Street.

The DIH compute facility will provide start-ups and companies undertaking research and development access to a 1GB internet (scalable up to 10 GB)  data connection via AARNet free of charge.

AARNet is a not-for-profit company that provides ultra high-speed Internet and collaboration services only to Australia’s research and education sector.  Researchers and developers applying to use this facility will be required to enter in to a DIH user agreement that is consistent with AARNet user policy and guidelines.
