Cooperative Research Centre Projects (CRC-Ps)

Cooperative Research Centre Projects (CRC-Ps)

The Cooperative Research Centre Projects (CRC-Ps)  is a  new initiative to support short term, industry-led research. CRC-Ps will be smaller collaborations than a CRC, operating on shorter project timelines (up to three years) and smaller budgets than a CRC. CRC-Ps will have simpler governance and administration arrangements than a CRC.

 

Background

The CRC Programme supports industry-led collaborations between industry, researchers and the community. The CRC Programme has two elements:

  • CRCs, which undertake medium to long term industry-led high quality collaborative research; and
  • CRC-Ps, which are short-term, industry-identified and industry-led collaborative research projects.

 

Objectives

The Cooperative Research Centre Projects (CRC-Ps) aims to

  • improve the competitiveness, productivity and sustainability of Australian industries, especially where Australia has a competitive strength solve industry problems and deliver tangible outcomes.
  • deliver outcomes in line with government priorities
  • encourage and enable small and medium enterprise (SME) participation in collaborative research
  • foster high quality research to help solve industry specific problems through collaborative research partnerships between industry entities and research organisations.

 

Funding

Up to $3 million over three years is available for each CRC-P.

Collaboration must at least match the amount of grant funding sought through cash and/or in-kind contributions. In-kind contribution means non-cash resources provided by a participant to conduct the activities of the CRC. They may be staff or non-staff resources.

 

Eligible Projects

Funding can be used to support:

  • research
  • salaries
  • student placements
  • commercialisation
  • capital items, such as equipment.

You cannot use funding for the same activities or projectpreviously or currently financed through any other funding scheme.

 

Eligible Applicants

Collaborations from industry, research and community sectors can apply. A lead participant (that is an industry entity) must submit the application.

CRC-Ps must have at least:

  • two Australian industry organisations including at least one small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) and
  • one Australian research organisation.

 

Timing

Applications close 29 August 2017.
