Your Bionics Challenge ’21 Opportunity.

From our launch date to close of entries, we are talking to you…the bionics Innovators, R&D leaders and start-ups with an interest or intent to participate in Bionics Challenge ’21.

Typically, our Challenge project leaders define their project goals and the ‘make-up’ of their team before entering the Challenge. However, we know that there will be talented individuals and start-up founders who will ask themselves, ‘will my project suit the Challenge…is this what they are looking for?’

If this is you, reach out to us to talk informally about your project in advance of the closing date. Clarifying goals and linking people, ideas and technologies in new ways is our core strength. Take a look at our published Terms and Conditions in advance of preparing a Brief Project Summary and ‘get in touch’.

We are here to support and mentor all bionics start-ups and teams striving to deliver game-changing innovations inside and outside our annual Bionics Challenge.

Bionics Challenge 2021

This years Bionics Challenge, delivered in partnership with the Motor Accident Insurance Commission (Qld) has an overall $300,000 in combined Cash Prizes, Mentoring and Acceleration.
