SA Defence Innovation Partnership funding announced

The South Australian government has opened its latest round of defence research funding from its Defence Innovation Partnership’s Collaborative Research Fund (CRF).

Up to $150,000 is available through the program for successful applicants to support genuine collaboration across government, universities and industry for defence-relevant research, development and innovation.

According to an announcement, the CRF is an important gateway to successful partnerships between industry, academia and Defence, and is building a community of innovators across a wide range of disciplines.

Minister for defence and space industries Susan Close said the DIP had delivered nearly $4 million in funding since it began in 2018 across 25 South Australian-based projects.

Close said: “This program is incredibly valuable in the way it connects researchers with defence industry and government and has already produced tangible success stories.

“Research and innovation is vital to our sovereign defence capability and we have some of the best researchers here in South Australia.”

The fund ensures that the highest priority defence research is being undertaken to meet the needs of the future defence force, with a number of projects going on to receive funding from the Australian Government’s Defence Innovation Hub.

Applications for South Australian-based projects are open from 11 July – 29 August 2022, with successful applicants announced later in the year.

More information is available at Collaborative Research Fund – Defence Innovation Partnership.
