Australian businesses are urged to join others and bid for work in an international collaboration with the UK.

The Australian Government is encouraging tenders for ‘A Joint Effort – Integrating Advanced Materials onto Military Platforms – Stage 2’.

Stage 1 (launched 2018) was about feasibility research into this Next Generation Technologies Fund (NGTF) priority area. Stage 2 needs new participants to collaborate with promising existing Stage 1 projects, plus new proposals to lab-test innovations for Defence applications.

The NGTF has set up a closed LinkedIn Group and a call for video Elevator Pitches plus an online collaboration space for Stage 2 cooperation leading to formal proposals.

Applications for these proposals must be submitted to the UK’s Defence and Security Accelerator by 31 January 2020.
