BIOTECH FUTURES CHALLENGE 2023
BIOTech Futures is an innovation and mentorship program that aims to empower the brightest young minds. Our initiative connects high school students with world-class academics to think creatively about scientific inspired solutions to challenges in the fields ranging from medicine and health to sustainable environment, emerging technologies, regulations and ethics.
At BIOTech Futures, innovation comes first. In 2022 we launched BIOTech Connect - an exclusive club for all challenge participants. This industry first initiative allows students and mentors to chat, network, share scientific resources and news, and much more. You can become part of a community of the next generation of budding young minds, all in a centralised hub via the log in on the website. We're looking forward to seeing you there.
Details on how to sign up will be made available after you register in the Challenge.
The competition is open annually to students who think differently, to create products that work better.
The judges – and Prof. Hala Zreiqat especially – are drawn to projects that employ clever yet simple engineering principles and address clear problems.
As well as proving a project’s technical viability, we love entrants to show us creativity and collaboration, too.
This year BIOTech Futures will also be looking for entries that address a sustainable issues and humanitarian engineering and what that means in the context of Australian priority areas and globalisation.
BIOTech Futures is a chance to highlight your skills to university's and employers. As well as having the opportunity to win from a selection of great prizes, you can kick-start your career and work together with your peers to create something innovative that you can be proud of.
"Ambitious students have the ability to develop innovative ideas and technologies that can change the world. BIOTech Futures rewards those who have the persistence and tenacity to develop their ideas."
