Applications sought for grants of up to $150,000 through Activate program

Manufacturing News

The Innovative Manufacturing CRC is inviting applications for its Activate program, which offers grants between $50,000 and $150,000 to support SME projects running between six and 12 months.

Activate projects must also be in collaboration with one of the IMCRC’s partner universities (or CSIRO,) involve Industry 4.0 principles, and ideally involve another SME. (See more information about applying here.) The grant funding must also be at least matched by the program lead’s investment.

“Kickstarting collaborative manufacturing research projects and helping them become commercially successful is critical to rebuilding the Australian manufacturing industry,” said IMCRC’s COO, Dr Jason Coonan.

“We are delighted IMCRC activate has already been able to help manufacturing businesses across the country, such as Alcolizer, accelerate their innovation journeys through development and application of new technologies and business models.

 “We’re calling on ambitious Australian manufacturing SMEs with strong, commercially viable ideas to apply for IMCRC activate while funding remains – which won’t be for much longer.”

The program was launched last year and has so far supported 15 projects, including those by Alcolizer and FormFlow.
