The Medical Device Partnering Program (MDPP) is an ideas incubator that supports inventors to turn their medical or assistive device ideas into proven concepts. It provides early stage development support to help de-risk, refine and develop ideas into commercially and technically viable prototypes. They do this by partnering clients with a community of experts including end-users and clinicians, manufacturers, service providers and world-class research partners and specialist facilities.
Founded by Flinders University, the program has now launched in Victoria with the support of Victoria’s Start-Up agency Launch Vic.
MDPP welcomes enquires from inventors and companies at any stage, but specialise in early-stage technical product development support. To apply visit https://mdpp.org.au/what-we-do/submit-innovation.
MDPP is also looking for people interested in supporting the innovations by offering their expertise at workshops and on clients’ projects. Anyone interested in participating should contact Matthew Richardson (R&D Manager) firstname.lastname@example.org, or Zoe Kristall (Innovations Manager) email@example.com.
