About the Program
The goal of the SPARK Sydney program is to help develop our capacity as innovators and entrepreneurs in the medical biotechnology and biosciences areas.
In particular, our goal is to help fund and mentor researchers who have existing or new ideas to translate them into products or services that can benefit patients and the community as a whole.
SPARK Sydney is a program that offers a mechanism for translating basic discoveries from health research into new devices, therapeutics and diagnostics that can be developed and brought into healthcare settings for the benefit of the Australian public. This program is aimed at those researchers who have innovative ideas and have not been able to move them outside of their laboratory.
The SPARK Sydney program will:
- Educate staff
- Facilitate mentoring
- Translate research
