National Bionics Innovation Leaders’ Summit
Our National Bionics Innovation Leaders’ Summit is a platform for identifying opportunities, challenges and key priorities for growing Australia’s bionic innovation ecosystem, accelerating Australia’s bionics R&D and nurturing early-stage, mid-stage, and late-stage ventures on their journey to market.
The inaugural Summit in 2023 hosted at the Queensland University of Technology saw esteemed guests from universities, hospitals, industry and charities gather to participate in a diverse range of presentations, panel discussions and roundtables. Topics included:
- Multi-Party Collaboration: Aligning our Knowledge, Talent and Resources to Focal Challenges
- Galvanising Medical Bionic Innovation in Hospital and Health Settings
- Bionic Innovation Funding and Pathways to Market
A key purpose of this extraordinary ‘meeting of the minds’ was to formulate a framework for a 10-Year National Roadmap for Bionics Innovation, Commercialisation and Growth, an initiative currently underway being spearheaded by Bionics Gamechangers Australia.
Bionics Breakfast Series
There is no doubt that an Australia-wide alliance of medical bionic champions, innovators, incubators and accelerators will be an unstoppable force in putting Australia’s bionic-medtech devices front-and-centre in global markets.
Throughout 2024, there will be ample opportunity for all interested parties to participate in our Bionics Breakfast Series held quarterly to share critical knowledge and awareness of local and global bionic discoveries; the latest industry trends; and much-needed insights on the design, development and commercialisation of bionic devices, treatments and implants.
