Accelerating medical technology innovation

Our dedicated team of Technology Innovation Managers will work in partnership with your Technology Transfer Offices to assist you to accelerate your medical technology development towards commercialisation.

Each project we develop in partnership draws on a range of resources, tools and perspectives led by our project delivery team.  We will connect complementary expertise from across the region and beyond to design, develop and deliver innovative medical technologies. We provide:

  • Assessment of market and regulatory requirements
  • Development of detailed project plans that consider all of the factors that could impair successful development of the technology
  • Targeted funding applications to progress innovation
