Event description

Description

Working on nanotechnology and seeking to make a big impact with your ideas? This event is for you!

The Australian Nanotechnology Network and the Australian National Fabrication Facility in partnership with RMIT University present 'Thinking BIG with Nano'. This workshop tailored for early-career researchers and late-stage PhD candidates will showcase research translation in nanotechnology and provide facilitated training in taking ideas from concepts to a viable business.

Highlights of the event include:

  • Keynote addresses from industry leaders (Dr Elaine Saunders, Blamey Saunders Hears and Dr Erol Harvey, Bionics Institute Australia)
  • Research translation case studies from Australian early- and mid-career researchers and international experts
  • Strategies for creating environments for entrepreneurship
  • Mechanisms and approaches for protecting intellectual property and building strong partnerships
  • Crafting messages for effective pitches
  • Facilitated, team-based, fast-paced hackathon to take industry-defined problems, work through ideas, and pitch a solution
  • Value-driven business strategies using a Lean Canvas
