MTPConnect is a not-for-profit organisation which aims to accelerate the rate of growth of the medical technologies, biotechnologies and pharmaceuticals sector to achieve greater commercialisation and establish Australia as an Asia-Pacific hub for MTP companies. It was formed in November 2015 as part of the Federal Government’s Industry Growth Centres Initiative.
MTPConnect is an independent and trusted voice, calling for change to support the sector. It fosters collaboration and competition, aggregates existing knowledge and shares it with the broader sector. It also jointly funds projects that address the Sector Growth Priorities and the constraints and gaps identified in the sector.
The MTPConnect Head Office is located at 15 WIlliams Street, Melbourne with the VIC Hub at Monash University, co-located with CSIRO and industry, the University of Sydney’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Technology, the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research in Perth and the Translational Research Institute in Brisbane.
The MTPConnect Board is led by Sue MacLeman and includes other respected industry leaders.
