The Big Idea?

Would you like to hear about the next Big Idea
that will revolutionise healthcare?

The Big Idea is the first Sydney Research event focusing on research innovation and commercialisation.

The Big Idea includes an innovation challenge which will support individuals to progress their idea to the next level within their organisation. It could be a treatment, a device, a prosthesis, an app, a piece of technology or a system – if it has the potential to be developed into a commercially viable product to transform healthcare or research – it could be the next Big Idea! This is an opportunity to gain exposure, support and mentoring through sponsors, industry and participating venture capitalists.

Sponsored by Sydney Local Health District and the University of Sydney, a judging panel will award up to $45,000 pre-seed funding for the winner(s) of the Big Idea to reach the next stage of commercialising their idea.

Expert speakers at the Big Idea will also highlight the importance of research commercialisation, identify key considerations and provide advice.

The Big Idea is being held as part of the 2017 Sydney Innovation and Research Symposium on Thursday 22 June.
