Join MDPP and an expert panel on the process used to transform ideas to commercially viable products.

MDPP Director Prof Sally McArthur will moderate a discussion with an expert panel on transforming ideas to commercially viable products. The panel of inventors, entrepreneurs, clinicians and researchers bring first-hand experience on what's required to vet and refine ideas and how to fill gaps in knowledge by connecting to the research and development community.

Hear how to get started, what has worked, what hasn't worked, and perhaps most importantly how to overcome challenges along the way.

Meet Flinders’ talented PhD and Masters by Research students at this dynamic virtual speed networking event. 

Following last year’s successful event, there have been a few tweaks that will help students and industry partners swiftly identify shared interests and potential connections.  It’s also a great way of finding out about the inspiring and innovative research being done by Flinders’ postgraduate researchers.

Groups will be brought together over topical, cross-industry themes such as:

  • Sustainability, resources and the environment
  • Technology, digitisation and innovation
  • Healthy communities, families and individuals
  • Social justice and equity
