Join ATP Innovations and NSW Health for the end of the year medtech innovations showcase on the 19th of November 2015!
This year’s Medical Device Commercialisation Training Program (MDCTP) has provided an opportunity to twelve outstanding post-doctoral researchers and clinicians to develop the necessary skills to commercialise their technologies ranging from suture-less wound closure for cataract surgeries to the next generation condoms.
The candidates will collectively showcase their technologies to the public for the first time at the NSW Medical Device Showcase 2015 taking place on the 19th of November at ATP Innovations.
We are inviting key industry stakeholders, including investors, entrepreneurs, academia & research, government and the industry to hear the entrepreneurial journeys of MDCTP candidates and listen to the keynote by the Hon. Jillian Skinner, NSW Minister for Health.
There will be an opportunity to network following the showcase, where light refreshments and nibbles will be served.
