Emerging Aviation Technology Partnerships Program - Round One

ClosedGrant Closed: 31st of March 2022 Value: Unspecified Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=8b0b34ef-bbb3-46b3-937b-f39da31d68bf

The EATP program will encourage adoption of emerging aviation technologies (such as drones, electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft and new aviation propulsion systems) to address community needs, particularly in regional Australia.

The Australian Government is seeking to partner with industry on the development and deployment of emerging aviation technology. These partnerships may also bring together other parties as required to deliver projects, such as state or territory government agencies, local councils and communities.

The Round One grant opportunity has five focus areas, with the option to establish trial projects and/or conduct research and development to support future trial projects. These focus areas have been identified by the government as priority areas of potential for the application of emerging aviation technology with a particular focus on providing benefits for regional communities.

You may address more than one focus area in your application (for example if your application includes more than one project or if your project touches on multiple focus areas), noting the Department will consider proposals against each of the focus areas addressed. There is no set funding allocation for each focus area, the funding will be used flexibly dependent on the nature of proposals received.

The five focus areas are:

  1. Digital farming
  2. Boosting regional supply chains
  3. Connecting regional communities
  4. Improving outcomes for regional and remote Indigenous communities
  5. Growing manufacturing in emerging aviation technology

You are not required to financially contribute towards the project however, you are encouraged to do so. You should note the nature of your co-contribution as part of your application so we can take it into consideration during the assessment process.
