The Big Idea is a Sydney Research event focusing on innovation and commercialisation to support researchers in launching or progressing their ideas that have commercial value in healthcare.
Applications from across the Sydney Research partnership describing the next Big Ideas that have the potential to revolutionise healthcare and deliver impressive have been received.
Our expert panel has narrowed chosen five finalists who will pitch their Big Idea to be awarded up to $45,000 pre-seed funding to reach the next stage of commercialising their Big Idea.
In addition, speakers at the Big Idea will provide advice from their area of expertise in research innovation and commercialisation.
This year, the Sydney Research STRIVE Research Innovation and Commercialisation Series will be hosted at the Big Idea, delivering "what makes a good product?"
The Big Idea is targeted at people who have an idea or research project that could be transformed into a commercial prospect with patient impact, those with an interest in R & D funding and research commercialisation and anyone who would like to see the next Big Ideas in healthcare.
The Big Idea will be held on Thursday June 21, 2018 at Bay 4, Australian Technology Park, Eveleigh.
