Announcing the MAIC QLD Student Bionics Challenge 2023

Are you a Queensland university student? Here is the chance to showcase your early-stage innovations for game-changing bionic devices, implants or treatments.

You and/or your fellow students should enter this Challenge if you have a ‘new to the world’ idea, or innovation that delivers a marked improvements in the design and end-user benefits of a device, implant or treatment.

Bionic innovations in this contest must sit within one or more innovation domains – bionic mobility, bionic senses, brain-computer interfaces, and bionic implants and organs.

With the core theme of Innovating with Medical Bionics to Respond to Trauma, Related Disability and Disease, all projects must directly benefit the recovery, rehabilitation and quality of life of motor accident survivors.

To inspire your team to enter the Student Bionics Challenge this year, watch the announcement of Student Bionics Innovation Challenge 2022 winners (see below) by Mr Neil Singleton on behalf of the Motor Accident Insurance Commission (MAIC) Qld, our major funding partner for this Challenge.
