The Actuator Series was a series of free interactive lectures, discussions and information exchange that ran throughout 2018. It was designed to provide medical researchers and early-stage entrepreneurs who already have great ideas with a guided pathway to securing a license or investment funding for their discovery.

The SPARK Co-Lab Actuator Series covered a broad range of topics relevant to start-up development stages from R&D to post-commercialisation, including sessions on investor pitching and entrepreneurial skills for drugs, biologics and medical devices. Participants benefitted from information-sharing, exchanges of opinion, lessons learned and other know-how from mentors and peers from across the many different disciplines required to succeed - from IP to regulatory affairs to stakeholder communications - delivered and facilitated by experts from across Australia and internationally. ​​

Generously supported by the City of Perth, the Actuator Series was run free of charge, and was open to anyone with an interest in strengthening Perth and Western Australia’s medical and biotech innovation capabilities.. 

Slide decks and information shared at some of the Actuator Series' most popular sessions will shortly be available on this page. In the meantime, you can find session recaps on our News page.
