Published on 20 April 2021

Some of the brightest and sharpest minds will come together on 29 April for the 2021 Macquarie Park MedTech/Cybersecurity Innovation Summit.

The landmark online summit will feature representatives from industry, government and academia who will provide insights on what the future holds for the fast growing MedTech sector.

Issues that will be tackled at the summit include the role of data in healthcare, the role of digital transformation (DX) during the COVID-19 pandemic, cybersecurity risks in MedTech and much more. 

Speakers at the summit include:

  • John Crothers, Regional Director – ANZ at Abbott Diagnostics 
  • Dr Jill Freyne, Deputy Research Director of the Australian ehealth Research Centre at CSIRO
  • Dr Duncan Macinnis, Director for Stakeholder Engagement for NSW at MTPConnect
  • Dr Summit Raniga, Associate Professor in Orthopaedic Surgery at Macquarie University Hospital.

City of Ryde Mayor, Clr Jerome Laxale, will also address the summit, and Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier, Gabrielle Upton. 

Another feature of the summit will be development of a Macquarie Park – Community of Practice – MedTechCyber security group, which will be established and meet regularly in the future to network, learn and share knowledge.  

Clr Laxale said the aim of the summit was to bring the MedTech sector together with the cybersecurity sector to drive partnerships, collaborations, innovations and investment into the sector and, most importantly, in Macquarie Park.

“Macquarie Park is the second largest contributor of GDP in NSW and is the Australian headquarter to some of the leaders in MedTech and cybersecurity, so it is fitting that we are holding such an important summit on these two fast-growing sectors right here in the City of Ryde,” Clr Laxale said.

“I would encourage anyone with an interest in MedTech and/or cybersecurity to register for this free online summit so that you can celebrate the sector’s achievements, develop vital networks and understand the positive impacts new innovations are having and will have in the sector.”

The 2021 Macquarie Park MedTech/Cybersecurity Innovation Summit forms part of the Macquarie Innovation Summit Series 2021, which is a series of themed events leading to the inaugural Innovation Summit.  This will be delivered in partnership with City of Ryde, CSIRO, MPID, Macquarie Park Connect, MTP Connect, The Austcyber NSW Cybersecurity Innovation node, Venture Café, and Macquarie University Incubator.

The free online event will be streamed from Venture Café Sydney, located in Macquarie Park.
