Cooperative Research Centres Projects (CRC-P) Grants

Funder:  Federal – Department of Industry

Grant Background: CRC-P grants support short term industry-led collaborations to develop important new technologies, products and services that deliver tangible outcomes.

To support the overall aims of the CRC Program, CRC-Ps must:

  • be a short term, industry-identified and industry-led collaborative research project to develop a product, service or process that will solve problems for industry and deliver tangible outcomes
  • benefit SMEs and increase their capacity to grow and adapt in changing markets
  • include education and training activities.

The grant amount will be up to 50 per cent of eligible grant project value. The maximum grant period is 3 years.

You can use funding to support costs directly related to the project, including for:

  • new research
  • proof of concept activities
  • pre-commercialisation of research outcomes
  • industry-focused education and training activities, such as internships and secondments between industry entities and research organisations.
  • conferences, workshops, symposia related to the joint research
  • related information sharing and communication initiatives related to the joint research.

Other costs may also be eligible for grant funding.

$ Available: up to $3million.

Eligibility:  Collaborations from all industry sectors, research disciplines and community sectors can apply.

To be eligible as a lead applicant you must:

  • have an Australian Business Number (ABN) and
  • be an entity incorporated in Australia and a trading corporation, where your trading activities
  • form a sufficiently significant proportion of the corporation’s overall activities as to merit it being described as a trading corporation or
  • are a substantial and not merely peripheral activity of the corporation.

Each CRC-P must include and maintain amongst its project partners at least:

  • two Australian industry entities including at least one SME and
  • one Australian research organisation.

You are not eligible to apply as the lead applicant if you are:

  • an individual, partnership or trust
  • a research organisation
  • a Commonwealth, State, Territory or local government agency or body (including government business enterprises)
