Bionics Queensland hosted the first event in partnership with Women in Technology. 60 attendees gathered at a breakfast meeting to hear about the impact that cross disciplinary collaborations and scientific research can have on improved clinical outcomes in the area of human bionics. Careers in STEM can lead to exciting and unexpected collaborations which have the potential to find bionic solutions for the “big picture” issues for Mankind.

Participants commented on how the overlapping of the speakers’ interests and activities gave a much broader view of the topic. A combination of “structured serendipity”, awesome science and inspirational and motivated people can do great things. This sets a great benchmark for the future of Bionics SEQ and our quest to create interfaces, linking clinicians, scientists, industry and investors to fast track the development of globally recognized bionics solutions.

The event was kindly sponsored by McCulloughs Law, and our three dynamic speakers did an excellent job of captivating the audience for the entire program.
