SA Cooperative Research Centre Assistance Program – Round 24

The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science (DIIS) is focused on developing a high performing research and innovation system that supports the growth of innovative and competitive businesses and industries.

Leveraging the Commonwealth Government’s Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program, the CRC Program drives long-term industry led collaborative research to build scale in research and innovation.

The South Australian Research and Innovation Fund (RIF) supports collaboration between businesses, researchers, and universities to solve industrial problems, commercialise new products and services, attract investment into research and research infrastructure in the State, and encourages the establishment and growth of start-ups.

The South Australian CRC Assistance Program is a RIF Stream 1 funded program and may invest in CRCs for three years as follows:

  • Up to $100,000 per annum for up to 3 years for a CRC node located in South Australia
  • Up to $200,000 per annum for up to 3 years for a CRC headquarter located in South Australia.

Applications for Stream 1 of the RIF are open for eligible programs that will create innovative solutions or translate research into industry or commercial outcomes that address economy-wide challenges for South Australia. For full eligibility, assessment criteria and the selection process, please read the SA CRC Assistance Program – Round 24 Guidelines below.
