THE CENTRAL COAST HUNTER’S MTP ECOSYSTEM COMPRISES:
MTP Sector Capability: companies that produce and/or manufacturer biotech and medical technology
Enablers: organisations that facilitate or enable translation from invention to clinical innovation such as research organisations and health systems
Supporting Organisations: that offer professional support and increase the sector capability such as governments, incubators, clinical research organisations and consultants
When all organisations are in close proximity and collaborate, such as in the CCH precinct, rapid acceleration of innovation, entrepreneurship and innovation is enabled.
In June 2020, Regional Development Australia (RDA) Hunter and the Hunter office of the Australian Industry (Ai) Group established MedTeCCH to co-ordinate and support the Hunter’s burgeoning MTP sector.
The MedTeCCH industry network brings together Central Coast Hunter-based MedTech and Pharma companies, national industry associations, sector specialists and education and research organisations. It was formed to strengthen the Central Coast Hunter’s diverse cluster of medtech companies through collaboration.
MedTeCCH identifies medtech as the application of knowledge and skills to develop devices, medicines, procedures, and systems to solve human and animal health problems. It is taking a whole of supply chain approach to growing the sector by collaborating to solve patient-centric health needs.
