MIME Affinity Meeting - MIME Funding available for development of new medical technologies

We invite all MIME colleagues interested in the development of medical technologies to attend the 2017 affinity meeting where our clinicians and clinical researchers at our partner hospitals will pitch potential unmet clinical needs for development. The 2017 round of the MIME seed fund is designed to build on the collaborative framework of MIME established in 2015. By encouraging early clinician involvement in identifying areas of significant clinical need our research can be directed to areas where it can deliver greatest impact. There will be up to $1,000,000 available in the 2017 funding round. Applications may request up to $100,000 per project. The funding will be directed to projects that can achieve a meaningful outcome within 12-18 months, e.g. proof-of-concept data or initial prototype.

Date Friday 10 Febuary 2017
Time 2.30pm - 5.00pm
Location MIME & Eastern Health Clinical School - Seminar Room 1, Level 3, 5 Arnold Street, Box Hill, Victoria.
