Future Leaders 2-Day Workshop

For medtech and neuroscience EMCRs

28th - 29th August 2023, Auckland (travel provided)

This workshop provides the opportunity for early- to mid-career researchers (EMCRs) in medtech and neuroscience to establish new research collaborations with high impact and develop transdisciplinary collaboration skills across organizations.

You will be encouraged to delve into problems, uncover innovative solutions, identify research projects, and initiate new collaborative working partnerships. This workshop will gather EMCRs from across organizations, attracting a diverse mix of neuroscience and medtech researchers. External speakers will also be involved to provide a commercialization perspective.
