Can you help the Federal Government solve challenges which relate to agriculture, energy and fishing? Funding is available as part of the government’s $12 million fund for eligible Australian start-ups and SMEs to bring their big ideas to market under its Business Research and Innovation Initiative (BRII).
BRII is looking for solutions to the following problems:
- Revolutionising agricultural spray applications;
- Turning farm crops into a renewable hydrogen source;
- Turning office trash into “energy treasure”; and
- Counting fish using advanced technologies.
The BRII application process involves three phases.
First, if accepted for feasibility, an eligible applicant can receive up to $100,000 to demonstrate that their solution can work.
Second, if a feasibility study is accepted, up to $1 million is available to create a proof of concept.
Successful applicants will then have the chance to work closely with sector experts and government to create a product that could be commercialised.
Applicants retain intellectual property rights and the right to sell their product in domestic and global markets.
Applications close 10 September 2020.
