The ABC show Q&A featured the topic of Innovation in Australia, featuring a University of Sydney research representative - Dr. Michael Biercuk. The program sparked interesting conversation regarding the national innovation statement, and whether the ratio of funding into university research and small stage start-ups is making sense.
The need of government support and investment into all levels of innovation from early stage start up Incubators and next generation technologies like Quantum Computers was discussed. Miriad Technologies, founded by University of Sydney researchers, also feels responsible to show active involvement in this conversation in future. Great to see that Australia is now seriously having this discussion to catch up to the rest of the world.

Miriad technologies is a recent 'graduate' of the start up accelerator program Incubate. We're extremely proud to be part of the start-up Class 7 featuring a wide range of entrepreneurs from drone technologies (Iridium Dynamics) to block-chain based equity management (Horyzon).
Tomonori Hu from Miriad Technologies pitches the idea of using mid-infrared spectroscopy to transform the way in which chemical sensing is done in the food industry. Moving beyond the academic industry and delivering field usable devices to the field is our vision at Miriad Technologies.
