IMNIS is our prestigious, flagship industry engagement initiative that partners motivated PhD students and early-career researchers (mentees) in STEM with influential, high level industry leaders (mentors) in a one-year mentoring and professional development program. 

IMNIS equips future STEM leaders from diverse backgrounds across Australia to excel in all aspects of the STEM ecosystem. It helps mentees increase their understanding of industry, identify the skills needed to succeed, learn about different career opportunities, and extend their professional network. Since IMNIS began, over 1,700 early-career researchers from more than 50 leading research organisations around Australia have been matched with industry leaders.  The IMNIS initiative is in a steady growth trajectory, and it is committed to delivering opportunities that will help create a more inclusive, diverseand connected STEM sector in Australia.
