MEDTRONIC SEEKING PARTNERS IN INNOVATION

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]For the first time in Australia, Medtronic Australasia will host Eureka LIVE in collaboration with AusBiotech’s premier medical technology conference AusMedtech 2020 from 20-22 May at the Melbourne Convention Centre. Applications are being called from in-market or ‘launch ready’ medtech companies who are looking for opportunities to scale their product innovations globally.

“Medtronic has the tools and experience to collaborate with inventors across a broad range of innovative ideas,” said Tim Fortin, Vice President and Managing Director, Medtronic Australasia. “We have a proven track record of bringing new products to market, by combining our research, engineering, and commercial competencies to deliver meaningful innovations at the therapeutic, procedural, and healthcare system levels.

“At Medtronic, we believe patient-focused innovation – and strong partnerships – remain key to an even better, more impactful future. We are confident that an approach focused on ANZ, which protects inventors and enhances opportunities to collaborate on innovation development, will yield excellent results and push medical technology forward,” Mr Fortin said.

Following the application process, shortlisted companies will showcase their innovations to delegates attending AusMedtech 2020 – both as part of the main Conference program and through Exhibition space at the event – before moving on to targeted and exclusive deep-dive sessions with global Medtronic executives. Successful companies will then be invited to connect with the Medtronic global network to accelerate and fund appropriate opportunities to market in the pursuit of improving community-wide health.

Eureka LIVE aims to promote innovations that add real value for better patient outcomes at appropriate costs, which are validated by solid clinical and economic evidence:

  • innovation for patients, like device technology or remote sensing and monitoring;
  • innovation for hospitals, like data-driven insights to improve processes and predictive analytics to inform patient selection and management;
  • innovation for health systems, like algorithms and data integration to produce system intelligence and transform system performance.
