Connect, Collaborate & Commercialise - ATN Research Translation Workshop    17-19 March, 2019

The ATN workshop will be held in Sydney next month and particularly ECR’s and MCR’s would benefit from these in terms of their research career.
The workshop will be run as a two-day intensive ‘bootcamp’ on research translation and commercialisation. Researchers will gain a better understanding of how to turn discoveries into commercial ventures, a collection of new connections, and possibly some ideas for new projects.
The workshop will have a Medtech and Oncology focus but researchers from all disciplines are encouraged to attend to build their multidisciplinary networks.

For more details, click here about it or you can go direct to the event page: https://atn-workshop-2019.eventbrite.com.au.by no later than Friday 1 March 2019.
