BridgeTech Program


The BridgeTech Program will enable Australia to more effectively capitalise on its world class medical technology–medical device research sector by providing mid‐career entrepreneurs and scientists with relevant, specific commercialisation training.

The program will be delivered by Queensland University of Technology in collaboration with the BridgeTech consortium which includes 20 companies, universities and industry partners from around Australia. The BridgeTech Program is a national online professional development program that will be delivered through online modules, a 3-day residential training workshop and various networking events and seminars.

The project will educate mid career researchers and entrepreneurs on the complex scientific, legal, financial, clinical, regulatory and reimbursement disciplines that contribute to research translation and the commercialisation of medical technology.
