A strategic alliance between Saltire Capital Partners and the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences

The 2023 Health Horizons Forum brings together stakeholders from the Australian healthcare sector, including key industry leaders, influencers, and government policymakers, to:

  1. Explore emerging research and innovation areas that could transform Australians’ health over the coming decades.
  2. Identify emerging policy issues, opportunities, and challenges across sectors to share with industry and government. 
  3. Connect stakeholders across the Australian health sector to facilitate future research, commercialisation, and innovation incubation.

The Forums leverage the expertise of the Academy’s Fellows’ to identify promising areas of research and innovation with the potential to transform the health of the Australian community.

Themes include research, development, and commercialisation of approaches to managing chronic conditions (e.g., mental health, gut health, arthritis, diabetes, and co-morbidity) and the latest developments in health and medical devices, genomics, and artificial intelligence. 

Professor Ian Frazer, AC, FRS, FAA, FTSE FAHMS, and Fellow of the AAHMS Executive member, says, “The 2023 Health Horizons Forum will harness the expertise of AAHMS Fellows to identify big ideas that could transform the health of the Australian community in the coming decades.

As Australia’s Learned Academy for health and medical sciences, we’re ideally placed to facilitate discussions around how Australia can harness the outputs of some of the most promising fields of research and innovation. The partnership with Saltire Capital Partners helps ensure these conversations incorporate invaluable cross-sector perspectives.”
