Government grants available for industrial innovations

The Rudd Government’s $196 million support program for Australian-made innovations, Commercialisation Australia, is now open for applications.

Commercialisation Australia is a merit-based, competitive assistance program designed to support Australian businesses from a variety of industries including manufacturing and processing.

According to the minister for innovation, industry, science and research, Senator Kim Carr, the first step for potential applicants is to visit the new Commercialisation Australia website and fill-in a pre-application checklist.

“[Commercialisation Australia] has a broad national reach with case managers based in states and territories across Australia offering tailored advice to successful applicants,” said Carr.

“There is no deadline for submitting an application to Commercialisation Australia. Innovators can now access assistance when they need it.”

According to Carr, Commercialisation Australia bridges the gap between research and successful commercial reality.

Commercialisation Australia is designed to assist researchers, entrepreneurs and innovative firms to commercialise their ideas, offering grants on a co-contribution basis up to $2 million.
