Pen CS is a proud winner of the NSW Government’s first R&D Innovation Districts Challenge, designed to find research and development solutions that reduce the impact of COVID-19 on the health and wellbeing of the people of NSW.

“Pen CS is delighted to be a winner of this Innovation Challenge which demonstrates our commitment, to continue to push boundaries, to find better ways to improve healthcare for all Australians,” said Edweana Wenkart, Managing Director, Pen CS.

More than 110 businesses applied to be part of the NSW Government’s R&D Innovation Districts Challenges.

“Thirty-five finalists were evaluated by NSW Treasury and a panel of experts from NSW Health, the Office of the NSW Chief Scientist and Engineer, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and it’s great to see collaborations from innovation districts across the state share in the funding,” said The Hon. Stuart Ayres, NSW Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney.

“Innovation is the key to increasing productivity, boosting jobs and creating new industries,” said The Hon. Dominic Perrottet, NSW Treasurer.

Pen CS thanks Western Sydney University, our innovation district partner for the collaboration and NSW Treasury, NSW Health, Office of the NSW Chief Scientist and Engineer and Massachusetts Institute of Technology who evaluated the applications.

We would also like to congratulate our industry colleagues, who are equally demonstrating vibrant technology solutions that can improve healthcare for all Australians.
