Eureka LIVE: Medtronic Australasia launches new programme at AusMedtech 2020


Medtronic Australasia is calling for innovative companies across Australia and New Zealand that are looking to scale-up, as it launches its new Eureka LIVE programme at AusMedtech 2020.

Applications are invited from in-market or ‘launch ready’ medtech companies who are looking for opportunities to scale their product innovations globally. Shortlisted companies will have the chance to showcase their innovations to delegates at AusMedtech 2020 at the Medtronic ‘innovation hub’ and during a three-minute pitching challenge, and to also have 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 for patients, hospitals, and health systems that add real value for better patient outcomes at appropriate costs, and which are validated by solid clinical and economic evidence.

AusBiotech is committed to providing platforms for learning and networking, and this partnership is significant as it facilitates investment discussions, collaborations and partnerships.

Tim Fortin, Vice President and Managing Director, Medtronic Australasia said, “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.”

Applications are now being accepted and will be open until 31 March 2020.
