Maker Projects - Community STEM Engagement Grants 2024 Grant Closes: 14th of August 2024 - 5:00 pm Value: $20,000 to $100,000 Run By: Australian Government Department of Industry, Science and Resources Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=c6108176-9b9a-4576-9aa6-a7ca51d6ec6b

The Maker Projects - Community STEM Engagement grants 2024 provides grants for fostering inquiry-based learning and the development of STEM skills in students and youth under 18 years of age in design, engineering and programming, through hands-on learning.

The objectives of the grant opportunity are to:

  • deliver maker projects where students and youth under 18 years of age, at the time of application, can develop and apply their STEM knowledge through experimentation, tinkering and hands-on learning by engaging with a range of technologies
  • encourage practical skills, creativity and entrepreneurial thinking through the delivery of hands on STEM-related events and activities
  • inspire students to pursue STEM disciplines in their study and work
  • ensure that maker projects are accessible to as many young people as possible, including those in regional, rural and disadvantaged areas
  • make a positive and ongoing impact on youth under 18 years of age, particularly diverse cohorts and communities historically underrepresented in STEM including:
    • First Nations peoples
    • culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) people
    • women and girls
    • people living in regional and remote areas
    • people with disability
    • people from low socio-economic backgrounds
    • neurodivergent people
    • LGBTQIA+ people
    • people who face age-based discrimination.

The intended outcomes of the grant opportunity are:

  • students and youth under 18 years of age will gain practical knowledge and skills in scientific experimentation, design, technology, innovation and entrepreneurship
  • an increase in the accessibility of STEM-related events and activities and increased participation of youth under 18 years of age, particularly diverse cohorts and communities historically underrepresented in STEM as defined in the glossary
  • positive and ongoing development of STEM skills for participating youth through inquiry-based learning.

Industry Growth Program: Commercialisation and Growth Grant Closes: Ongoing Value: $100,000 to $5 Million Run By: Australian Government Department of Industry, Science and Resources Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=17fb17b2-de0c-4ad3-9f3e-33e929da8fbb

The Industry Growth Program has been established to support innovative Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) undertaking commercialisation and/or growth projects within the National Reconstruction Fund (NRF) priority areas. Participating businesses will have access to Advisory Services to help them overcome the significant challenges that may be associated with their projects.

Commercialisation and growth projects are intended to include those that can already demonstrate completion of feasibility studies and proof-of-concept. Projects are intended to include the journey of product, process or service development from early prototyping through to actual application in its final form, and the capability to scale up to full rate production and grow into new markets.

Participants in the Advisory Service may apply for Commonwealth grant funding to support specific commercialisation and/or growth projects.

The commercialisation and growth stages may include developing marketplace strategies for entry to market, accelerating growth and scaling up into national and international markets.

Industry Growth Program: Early-Stage Commercialisation Grant Closes: Ongoing Value: $50,000 to $250,000 Run By: Australian Government Department of Industry, Science and Resources Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=700a66a6-2f43-46f8-b718-ae4d527caff1

The Industry Growth Program has been established to support innovative Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) undertaking commercialisation and/or growth projects within the National Reconstruction Fund (NRF) priority areas. Participating businesses will have access to Advisory Services to help them overcome the significant challenges that may be associated with their projects.

Early-stage commercialisation projects are intended to include the journey from feasibility studies and the development of proof-of-concept through to the production and testing of early prototypes in a simulated or theoretical environment. Testing should validate the commercial viability of the innovative product, process or service.

Participants in the Advisory Service may apply for Commonwealth grant funding to support early-stage commercialisation projects.

Early-stage commercialisation is a formative stage in the development where your innovative product, process or service is translated, tested, developed and then refined and demonstrated.

The objective of the Early-Stage Commercialisation grant opportunity is to help businesses to undertake the steps necessary to establish the commercial viability of an innovative product, process or service, including steps to undertake feasibility and proof-of-concept through to prototyping.

Industry Growth Program Grant Closes: Ongoing Value: $50,000 to $5 Million Run By: Australian Government Department of Industry, Science and Resources Further Information: https://business.gov.au/grants-and-programs/industry-growth-program

The program supports innovative small and medium enterprises undertaking commercialisation and/or growth projects within the National Reconstruction Fund priority areas through advisory services and opportunities for matched grant funding. Minor changes or improvements to existing products or services are not considered innovative.

You will be connected to an Industry Growth Program Adviser who will provide tailored advice to support your commercialisation and/or growth project.

Once you have received this advice, you may also be able to apply for:

  • grants of $50,000 to $250,000 to support early-stage commercialisation projects
  • grants of $100,000 to $5 million for commercialisation and growth projects.

An innovative product, process or service:

  • is new, unique or significantly different to any other previous product, process or service in the market or industry where the product is intended to be sold/traded; or
  •  involves significant enhancements or developments of current products, processes or services that will enable the business to scale and transform.

Early-stage commercialisation projects are intended to include the journey from feasibility studies and the development of proof-of-concept through to the production and testing of early prototypes in a simulated or theoretical environment. Testing should validate the commercial viability of the innovative product, process or service. Various scales are typically referenced to demonstrate technology readiness or market readiness, with one example commonly referenced being Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs). As a guide, early-stage commercialisation grant projects are intended to broadly include the journey through TRL3 to TRL6.
