Improving Workforce Skills: Building an Industry-Ready Workforce for the Future The MTPConnect Podcast

    • Science

Australian Postgraduate Research Intern (APR.Intern) connects PhD students with industry, from incubators to multinationals, through short-term internships. These opportunities empower students to thrive in a practical research environment and for businesses to innovate and be future-ready. Their program also links businesses to fresh ideas and provides pathways for universities to expand research collaborations with industry. MTPConnect’s REDI initiative is providing funding for APR.Intern’s established Industry Placement program to increase workforce capabilities and strengthen research translation within Australia’s MedTech, biotech and pharma (MTP) sector. It’s providing a subsidy to 20 MTP sector businesses to take on a PhD student through a short-term research placement until the end of 2020. The upside is enabling innovative businesses to engage with Australia’s brightest emerging research talent. For universities, the placements support the development of an industry-ready Ph.D. workforce.
