The Dodd-Walls Development Centres are prototyping facilities set up to enable students and investigators to test the market-readiness of technology emerging from DWC research.
Taking a technology from the pristine world of the research lab to the harsh reality of the market can be a hard job. To support DWC projects and people through this journey the DWC established the South Island Development Centre in January 2016 and the North Island Development Centre in April 2017.
The Development Centres provide access to a dedicated team of professionals who can help researchers navigate this new territory and provide an industry perspective. They can solve specific industry problems, develop "commercialisation ready" prototype systems and provide all-around support to researchers during commercialisation process.
