A single day intensive bootcamp.

TRAMx bootcamps provide an accessible entry point to those who are keen to learn more about research entrepreneurship and achieving research impact, and need some assistance to get the ball rolling (or rolling in the right direction).

TRAMx will whip your ideas into shape faster than you can say ‘burpee’. The bootcamp is designed so we can get to know you while you get to know your mission statement.

We start at the beginning, introducing key frameworks needed to develop your ideas and start to build your business model. We’ll work with you to define and articulate the problem you’re trying to solve, and ask the probing questions needed to get you to rethink your approach to research impact. This is where the magic starts to happen.

TRAMx bootcamps run from 9.30am - 3.00pm and there are a range of digital and in person options for you to choose from. You're eligible to sign up if you're a researcher from the University of Melbourne or the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct.

Application information

Applications for TRAMx Bootcamps are currently closed and will re-open in 2024.

Participation in the TRAMx Bootcamp is part of the selection process for further TRAM programs. We encourage researchers to apply as individuals or teams. We know you’re busy so we have designed the TRAM application process to be quick and easy. We want to get to know you and your ideas in a few paragraphs, not a manuscript.

"My biggest takeaway from TRAMx was finding out that there exists a group of people within the University who are willing to champion entrepreneurial ideas and support those of us who are in pursuit of those ideas."

What’s the difference between the TRAM programs?
The TRAM programs are designed to be matched to how advanced teams are along their research impact and/or commercialisation journey. TRAMx is open to early stage or new research teams, TRAM Track and Runway are for teams that already have some traction, while TRAM Air assists more advanced teams who are working toward commercial outcomes.
