The MDPP were pleased to hold a networking event to hear from past MDPP clients on their experiences and learnings on engaging with a University and how this has influenced the progression of their medical device or assistive technology.
We have heard time and time again that successful medical technology innovation is difficult to achieve in isolation. We are looking at how industry and researchers benefit through the simple act of collaboration, and how this engagement can be facilitated.
The event included the official unveiling of the MTPConnect hub at Flinders University and provided an opportunity to hear from Sue MacLeman (CEO, MTPConnect) on what is MTPConnect and how its draft “Sector Competitiveness Plan” will boost the competitiveness, productivity and innovative capacity of Australia’s Medical Technologies and Pharmaceuticals sector.
Minister Jack Snelling MP was a special guest photographed here with Sue MacLeman and Dr Bownwyn Evans.
