CRC Projects 5th Selection Round now open

Calling for new collaborations between industry and research organisations…

Cooperative Research Centres

Are you developing a new technology, product or service? If so, funding from the Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program can help. Applications for the CRC Projects 5th selection round opened Thursday 8 February 2018.

What are the grants for?

Cooperative Research Centre Projects (CRC-P) grants support short term industry-led collaborations to develop important new technologies, products and services.

CRC-P grants aim to:

  • improve the competitiveness, productivity and sustainability of Australian industries, especially where Australia has a competitive strength to solve industry problems and deliver tangible outcomes
  • encourage and enable small and medium enterprise (SME) participation in collaborative research
  • foster high quality research to help solve industry specific problems through collaborative research partnerships between industry entities and research organisations.

Grants up to $3 million over three years are available for each eligible CRC-P.

The CRC-P collaboration must at least match the amount of grant funding sought through cash and/or in-kind contributions. In-kind contribution means non-cash resources provided by a participant to conduct the activities.

You can use the funding to support the costs of:

  • research
  • salaries
  • student placements
  • commercialisation
  • capital items, such as equipment.

Who can apply?

Collaborations from industry, research and community sectors can apply.

Applications that are industry-led and focused on practical outcomes to major industry problems are encouraged to apply.

CRC-P applications must be submitted by a lead participant on behalf of the collaboration, which must be an industry entity.

Key application dates

Selection round funding applications close 5:00pm (AEDT) Tuesday 27 March 2018.
