Partnerships and collaborations

Whakahoa

The Centre for Bioengineering and Nanomedicine works collaboratively bringing scientific and industrial leaders together to advance breakthroughs in medical technology. Read about some of the current and recent collaborators we have engaged with.

Overview

The Centre provides an avenue for commercial and industry sectors to work with cutting-edge researchers. Our competency is strengthened by interdisciplinary and inter-institutional collaborations with whom we can offer complex developments suitable for many industrial sectors.

The interdisciplinary nature of bioengineering, its strong academic underpinning and ethos of applied scientific relevance offer many diverse opportunities for applied research collaborations.

Benefits of engagement include:

  • Access to the world-class scientific expertise of research staff and their networks
  • Cost-effective access to cutting-edge University facilities and instrumentation
  • The added credibility of a research association with the University of Otago
  • The potential to jointly seek contestable government funding support
  • Exposure and profile across the wider University community
  • Staff recruitment opportunities
