Bringing medical devices to life

Have you got a great idea for the world’s next medical innovation or assistive technology?

Applications are open now for funding support from the Flinders University Medical Device Partnering Program (MDPP).

The MDPP facilitates the development of medical devices and assistive technologies by bringing together clinicians, researchers, end-users, industry and government partners to provide a streamlined process for collaboration and innovation.

The program works with medical device projects at any stage in the product development process, ranging from early stage concepts, through to market testing and clinical evaluation, and supports the development of products with an identified clinical need, sound technical solution and a viable market opportunity.

South Australian inventors, clinicians and researchers can apply to receive up to 250 hours of Research and Development assistance for their medical device or assistive technology product or concept.

Funding is available via the Medical Technologies Program (a State Government grant assistance scheme).

With access to all three publicly-funded South Australian Universities, the MDPP can offer multi-disciplinary research expertise and state-of-the-art facilities for product development and testing.

Applications close on Friday 6 October 2017.

Staff who would like their unique product idea supported by world-class research, manufacturing and business expertise are encouraged to contact the MDPP today and complete the online form.
