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.

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

- 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.
