ACMD: Enabling more "D" in R&D

The ACMD is purposefully designed to enable more development ("D") in research and development (R&D).

From restoring sight to the blind, to limb repair and regeneration, healthtech has the potential to treat and prevent illness, manage medical conditions, and foster well being in ways that have never been possible before. The ACMD and its partners will bring a multidisciplinary, cross-entity, global approach that will better translate research into commercial ventures and equip Australia to tackle national health priorities and improve lives. The ACMD HealthTech Innovation Hub will enable this pioneering work to happen faster and more effectively.

Our Mission

1. Stimulate and enable multidisciplinary, cross-entity projects (within purposefully selected “themes” of focus) that can significantly improve patient outcomes, and health system value

2. Catalyze “faster, better, cheaper” creation of investment ready healthtech startups



Connecting clinicians, hospital staff, patients and their carers with researchers, engineers, and technologists to develop new medical solutions that not only improve patient outcomes and quality of life, but also brings better value to the healthcare system.
