Boost your business with a government innovation fund

Grant Types #1: Innovation – new ideas, new products, services or approaches

Australian inventions are helping to power businesses and improve the lives of everyday Australians.

Some of our most successful inventions are the result of a collaboration between Australian businesses and researchers from publicly-funded research organisations such as universities or the Commonwealth Science and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).

Businesses that work with researchers on innovation are more likely to improve productivity than ones that don’t. Together businesses and researchers can solve problems and bring new goods and services to the market.

The government helps connect more of the brightest minds in research with businesses to ensure Australia has innovative solutions to support long-term economic growth.
