Emerging Assistive and Medical Technologies Network Project
ATSE is exploring the establishment of an enabling assistive technologies network, a concept that arose from discussions with the National Enabling Technologies Strategy Group (NETS). This work will involve the production of an issues paper, convening a workshop to discuss the key issues, and publishing a final report and recommendations. Support is provided by the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE).
