Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Grants - Round 23

ClosedGrant Closed: 24th of August 2021 - 5:00 pm Value: No specified minimum or maximum - historical average of $45M Run By: Australian Government Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=075cf28b-ca85-47c4-8859-0c4accf0500a

The CRC program supports industry-led collaborations between industry, researchers and the community. The program is a proven model for linking researchers with industry to focus on research and development towards use and commercialisation.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • improve the competitiveness, productivity and sustainability of Australian industries, especially where Australia has a competitive strength, and in line with Government priorities, including National Manufacturing Priorities
  • foster high quality research to solve industry-identified problems through industry-led and outcome-focused collaborative research partnerships between industry entities and research organisations
  • encourage and facilitate small and medium enterprise (SME) participation in collaborative research.

The number of CRC grants funded in each round will depend on the number of quality applications received, the relative merits of applications, the amount of available funding and the need to ensure sufficient funding is available for future rounds.

There is no minimum and maximum grant amount. The average CRC grant in recent rounds is $45 million. The amount you request should be proportional to the scope and complexity of your project. The grant amount will be up to 50 per cent of eligible grant project costs (grant percentage) which includes the total eligible expenditure plus allowable in-kind contributions.
