The Medical Device Partnering Program (MDPP) is a successful initiative of Flinders University, driving early stage development of new medical devices. As an 'ideas incubator', the Program connects inventors with a range of expertise and converts ideas into proven concepts through research and development. The team in South Australia has worked with hundreds of inventors to support them at the earliest stage of ideation and development.
With the support of MTPConnect, the medical technologies and pharmaceuticals growth centre, the MDPP has been working on plans to expand right across Australia to achieve even greater industry impact for the nation. Victoria will formally launch in January 2019 and other states are not far behind.
This session is designed to be both informative and engaging. Professor Karen Reynolds, Director of the Program, will provide an overview of the MDPP, its achievements and plans for expanding nationally. Jo Close, Project Manager for the National Expansion, will follow up with a workshop-style session to explore opportunity for Tasmania to engage in the Program.
A light lunch will be provided on arrival.
