SPARK Co-Lab Actuator Seminar Series

Found in: News

We are pleased, and very excited, to invite SPARK Co-Lab Design alumni, mentors, speakers and the wider Accelerating Australia community to join SPARK Co-Lab at the official launch of the Actuator seminar series. 

The Actuator will be a weekly lecture series delivered free of charge, designed to enable the next generation of medical innovators. It will do this by providing medical researchers and early-stage entrepreneurs who already have great ideas with support, tools and know-how to commercialise their products through information sharing, mentorship and networking delivered and facilitated weekly by experts from across Australia and internationally.

The Right Honourable the Lord Mayor of Perth Lisa Scaffidi will provide opening comments to officially launch the lecture series, in recognition of the funding and support for the Actuator Series being provided by the City of Perth as part of their ongoing commitment to the life sciences sector in Perth and across Western Australia.

SPARK Co-Lab's Celine Royet will then host an interactive panel featuring three of SPARK Co-Lab's recent success stories, Perth-based start-ups NiMO, Biacorand Iris Biomedical, as well as more established companies including OncoRes and Resonance Health, who will speak about their experiences on the journey from identifying unmet medical needs to starting a company to solve these problems. To close the event, Kevin Pfleger, chair of Accelerating Australia will speak about the strength and diversity of the biomedical innovation ecosystem in Perth and across Australia.

Light refreshments and networking will follow, giving attendees the chance to talk further with the evening's panellists and presenters.

Please see the attached flyer for the upcoming programs.
