MTPConnect is Australia's Life Sciences Innovation Accelerator – an independent, not-for-profit organisation established by the Australian Government to champion the continuing growth of Australia's vibrant medical products sector. 

MTPConnect forges stronger connections between research and industry to help maximize opportunities for Australians to not only make scientific and technological breakthroughs, but to see them developed through the proof-of-concept stage and successfully translated and commercialised. 

We achieve these outcomes with a focus on improving collaboration and commercialisation, funding cutting-edge innovations, improving management and workforce skills, optimising the regulatory and policy environment and improving access to global supply chains and strategic international markets. 

MTPConnect also operates accelerator programs to support the development of cutting-edge medical technology, biotechnology and pharmaceutical innovations, with more than A$180 million invested so far in 200 projects.
