Emerging Aviation Technology Partnerships (EATP) Program – Round Two

ClosedGrant Closed: 27th of July 2023 - 11:30 pm Value: Up to $2 Million Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=51f2ec6a-cdb3-442e-8c11-aadef445922c

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

The EATP Program enables the Australian Government to partner with industry on the development and deployment of emerging aviation technology, and on research around enablers of such technology. It is intended partnerships will also bring together other parties as required to deliver projects, such as state and territory government agencies, local councils and communities.

Through these partnerships, industry will receive support to trial the deployment of new aviation technology and the Government will gain real-world experience and a valuable opportunity to test the regulatory frameworks needed for the sector as it grows. This will ultimately help ensure Australia is positioned to accommodate new aviation operations with increased technical complexity and at a greater scale.

The EATP Program has an emphasis on Australian and international operators planning local investments and growing the Australian market. Partnerships between Government and industry to prove the viability of new services and operational concepts, conduct enabling research and to support the introduction of new aviation technology, will enable Australian technology developers and manufacturers to fast-track opportunities for their products.
