REDI Information Session: Call for Proposals for Skills Gap Programs (Round 2)
MTPConnect deploys the $32 million Researcher Exchange and Development (REDI) initiative supported by the MRFF. The four-year initiative aims to deliver system-wide improvements to skills development and training programs for the MTP workforce.

MTPConnect is partnering with research, training and industry organisations to deploy an integrated three-pillar plan driving skills and workforce development for the MTP sector nationally.

REDI has undertaken a skills gap analysis research in the MTP sector, and recently released the second of three reports examining skills gaps in the medical technology, biotechnology and pharmaceutical (MTP) sector workforce - 'Driving skills development and workforce training for the future MTP workforce'. Closing the gaps identified in the report is vital for Australia’s MTP workforce to power the next wave of innovation and growth.

Under Round Two of the REDI Contestable (REDIC) Program, MTPConnect is calling for suitably qualified organisations to submit proposals for programs that address two key skills gaps:
• Identifying unmet market need and understanding the clinical context
• Ability to secure investment, funding and/or industry collaboration

This information session webinar on Wednesday, 17 March at 2:00pm – 3:30pm (AEDT) will outline the application process for REDIC Round Two.

MTPConnect Senior Director Stakeholder Engagement and REDI Co-chair Dr Rebecca Tunstall will open the session and Jarrod Belcher and Dr Michelle Low from MTPConnect’s REDI team will provide information about the submission process, preparing a proposal and host a question and answer session.

Check the MTPConnect website (www.mtpconnect.org.au) for guidelines and RfP documentation, and have your questions ready.
