2022 TRAM Track Presentation Day
TRAM Track Presentation Day will see the sixteen teams that have participated in TRAM Track this year share their research impact journeys, from where they started at the beginning of the program to where they are headed next.
Come hear about what this online cohort has been working on, how they have achieved some really exciting wins over the last two months, and what achieving real-world impact looks like for them.
- 3.00pm | Doors open
- 3.30pm | Presentations commence
- 4.45pm | Presentations conclude, networking starts
- 5.30pm | Event concludes
Meet the teams
- 3D Whiteboard: Teaching 3D content in classrooms is difficult and currently limited to 2D. The team has developed a 3D whiteboard using VR and AR that allows a teacher to precisely annotate 3D objects and enables real-time teacher-student interaction with minimal training (Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology).
- Australian Hemp Panels: The existing materials for building panels are flammable and not sustainable. Industrial Hemp utilises the core of the hemp, which is called hurd, and turns this into a building product(Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology).
- Capabilities: The compensation and resettlement structures for people who have been affected after a natural disaster has hit are currently insufficient and fails to consider the wellbeing of individuals affected. Capabilities provides a scientific framework to assess these peoples’ situations by going beyond simple asset loss and considers the wellbeing of individuals(Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning)
- DiO: It is difficult for school graduates to keep track of all the events and activities constantly happening around them. DiO is a platform that consolidates information on these events making them more accessible for the user and increasing engagement at events(Faculty of Arts).
- Flow Chemistry: Traditional manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients has many operational constraints resulting in poor efficiency and productivity. Flow Chemistry has developed a continuous flow synthesis technology that overcomes technical limitations(Faculty of Science).
- GP Ethics: Our GPs face ethical dilemmas when patients request treatments that are medically unnecessary, causing stress and decreased wellbeing for the GP. GP Ethics is developing a new ethical support program for GPs and education program for patients.(Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences).
- Healthy Housing is a device to inspect the quality of indoor environments (for example, noise, light, temperature, and indoor air quality) and identify potential health-harming attributes(Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences).
- Leadership Assemblages in Early Childhood Education and Care: In early childhood education and care, service providers appoint an individual as “educational leader” however this role is poorly defined and understood. This project aims to re-conceptualise the role of an educational leader (Melbourne Graduate School of Education).
- Nano-Purification is a process which offers a faster, cheaper and safer way to separate or purify products that normally require centrifugation or sedimentation steps (Faculty of Science).
- Nanoscale Bioimaging: Hatchery eggs are incubated and chicks are sexed days/weeks after hatching when it is possible to determine gender. This occupies valuable hatchery resources and is very labour intensive. The team has developed a nanoscale bio-imaging technology that identifies properties such as gender at an embryonic stage(Faculty of Science).
- Navigating Health is looking at how we enable people to navigate the health system. Most people don’t realise they can’t navigate the system until they find themselves in the middle of it or trying to navigate it for a loved one(Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences).
- NestAid is a social impact project helping international/interstate/regional students to equip their household with diverted hard waste(Faculty of Science).
- Psychologically Informed Audiology is looking at how to incorporate psychologically informed practice into hearing healthcare services(Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences).
- Waking Up!: An increasing number of ICU cardiac surgery patients are experiencing a severe condition that is currently poorly understood and not yet classed as a syndrome. Waking Up! aims to increase awareness around this condition and develop best practice of how to handle this condition in ICU cardiac surgeries(Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences).
- Xchip is a proposed novel chip technology that forms the basis for the nervous system of cognitive robots that are naturally generally intelligent, learning and adapting in the manner of natural fauna (Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences).

About TRAM Track
TRAM Track is an eight-week pre-accelerator program for researchers to develop customer insight. Teams work to understand the relationship between the solution they’re developing and the problem their customers have by iteratively interviewing potential customers and end-users, creating a feedback loop that allows teams to fine-tune ideas, validate concepts and understand how to create the ideal problem-solution fit.
