This month, the MDPP Victoria team celebrated their first birthday, and we want to thank all of our supporters and collaborators who have helped make the first year such a success.
During this first year they have hit the ground running and have:
- Established an expert team
- Leveraged the expertise of our Victorian Steering Committee of industry leaders from the sector
- Consulted on over 80 ideas for new medical technologies
- Held 25 workshops, bringing together industry and research experts to provide input on these innovations
- Approved funding for nine projects
We could not have done any of this without the valued support of many.
First we’d like to thank LaunchVic, Victoria’s startup agency, for their support to deliver the Program in Victoria.
Our Victorian partners who have contributed expertise, facilities and guidance: Swinburne University, St. Vincent's Hospital, University of Melbourne, RMIT University, Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication, Monash University, La Trobe University, Baker Institute, CSIRO, Bionics Institute and BioMedVic.
Our National MDPP Sponsors: Design + Industry, FB Rice, Madderns, Motherson Innovations and Phillips Ormonde Fitzpatrick for their support to help build the med-tech industry in Australia.
And to the many, many organisations and individuals who have provided their time and expertise during workshops and client consultations.
We look forward to making an even greater impact during 2020, supporting more ideas for medical or assistive devices. So if you have an idea for a new medical technology and need R&D assistance, connect with us today. Or if you know of someone who may benefit from MDPP assistance, please refer them to our website: www.mdpp.org.au.
Again, thank you to everyone who has supported us in our vision for Australia to lead the world in med-tech innovation and drive solutions to advance healthcare globally.
