CRC-P round 11 grant applications open

Manufacturing News

Applications opened on Thursday morning for Round 11 of CRC-P grants of between  $100,000 and $3 million.

For CRC-P support, projects can run up to three years and must have a minimum of two Australian industry partners (with one SME) and feature a research institute as a partner.

The round is open to all manufacturers, but the website cautions that it “will have a focus on supporting projects that align with the National Manufacturing Priorities” announced in October last year. The six favoured sectors are 

  1. Resources Technology & Critical Minerals Processing
  2. Food & Beverage
  3. Medical Products
  4. Recycling & Clean Energy
  5. Defence
  6. Space

Round 11 would also support two projects with a total of up to $6 million for Regional CRC-Ps. These must:

– certify that the project will be based in a regional area; and 

– at least one Australian industry entity project partner will relocate from a capital city or the Australian Capital Territory for the duration of the project.

The federal regional grants “are the first in a suite of decentralisation measures that will create more jobs and investment in country communities,” said minister for decentralisation and regional education Andrew Gee in a joint statement with industry minister Karen Andrews.

Applications are open until 5 pm March 25 AEDT.
