SMBE (NSW) Inc is pleased to announce its partnership with

Australian Biomedical Engineering

Innovation Awards (ABEIA) (TM)

See the letter below from Peter Deliopoulos, announcing and describing the award ...

PDMedical is proud to announce the establishment and launch of the Australian Biomedical Engineering Innovation Awards (ABEIA). We are also proud to have the support of the SMBE (NSW) in the showcasing of the finalists at their annual conference and presentation at the conference dinner in March 2018.

The aim of these awards is to encourage biomedical innovation in Australia, showcase biomedical innovations, recognise the innovators their achievements and contribution and help encourage and accelerate innovation delivery that benefits the health sector- helps clinicians, reduces costs and improves patient care.

Entries to the 2018 Australian Biomedical Engineering Innovation Awards will open on 1 September 2017 and close on 30 November 2017.

The attached document PDMedical -ABEIA_17 July 2017_SAS.pdf outlines the awards and judging process which will be used for the 2018 Awards. The PDMedical – ABEIA- LL-R1 document outlines the awards and judging process which will be used for the 2018 Awards.

Four awards are available for innovation with demonstrated impact for hospitals and patient care. The impact and benefits that might arise from innovation in the application and use in for example service and maintenance, testing equipment, medical devices, education and training.

We are also delighted to announce that the shortlist of finalists judged by the independent panel will be invited to present their innovation at the annual SMBE NSW conference.

I look forward to your responses, questions and more importantly, your entries.

Let the competition begin!
