1:40pm -  Plenary Session 3 - Thinking Outside The Square - The Challenge

Rapid Ideation & Exploration Workshop  
In this interactive workshop, participants will collectively explore ideas for new transformative technologies for the sector.  Modelled on the principles of the Medical Device Partnering Program, the session will rapidly harness the collective wisdom of participants and facilitate a process to consider the idea from multiple perspectives and identify a path forward.  Not only will participants get an insight into the methods used in early stage innovation, but they will also be inspired about the solutions they co-create.

Objectives

  • Learn about the ideation process: testing an idea and its relevance in the market, understanding the impact of intellectual property rights, collaborating and brainstorming possible solutions, defining a focused path forward
  • Hear about the success of the Medical Device Partnering Program, an ideas incubator that brings together a range of collaborators
  • Explore technology ideas: it may be a new way of monitoring an individual's health status in the home, a new means of communicating with family or carers, an efficient system for service delivery, or even a device that empowers independence.

Expectations of Participants

  • You can contribute your idea or problem!: prior to the session you have the opportunity to submit an idea. We’ll select the best ideas and explore a different idea at each table.
  • Bring your thoughts and your enthusiasm: you will be collaborating with other participants at your table.
  • Be open-minded: diversity of opinions and expertise are valued.
