The Australian Government’s Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) program supports medium and long term end user driven research collaborations to address the major challenges facing Australia.
The Minister for Science and Research, Senator Chris Evans, announced on 29 November 2012 that the Government will invest up to $240 million in the 16th CRC selection round. Priority areas for the round are innovative manufacturing, sustainable regional communities and social innovation. However, applications are not restricted to these three areas.
Information sessions will explain the application requirements (including how to use the CRC impact tool) and the assessment process.
Sessions will also provide a general overview about the CRC program and include information about other state or territory government assistance that may be available to you.
In addition to each session, the department will be available to meet individually with potential applicants or interested parties to provide more direct feedback. These meetings (held the same day in the afternoon) are limited and bookings are essential.
