Innovation Connections

ClosedGrant Closes: Ongoing Value: Up to $50,000 Run By: AusIndustry Further Information: https://www.business.gov.au/grants-and-programs/innovation-connections

Innovation Connections assists businesses to understand their research needs, connect with the research sector and fund collaborative research projects.

The Innovation Connections Facilitation service is free and includes access to a highly skilled facilitator. At the completion of your Innovation Connections Facilitation, and at the recommendation of your facilitator, you may subsequently apply for an Innovation Connections Grant.

An Innovation Facilitator will work with your business to understand your research needs. This might include:

  • discussing strategic research opportunities into new or existing markets
  • identifying critical research areas for improving your products, processes and services
  • finding ways for your business to work with the research sector (i.e. CSIRO, universities and other publicly funded research organisations).

At the end of the engagement, you will be provided with an Innovation Facilitation Report that outlines your business’ research needs and opportunities. If a collaborative research project is recommended, the facilitator will connect your business to expertise within the research sector and help to define a project scope. You will then be able to apply for an Innovation Connections Grant to co-fund the project.
