Six applicants have been shortlisted to deliver new industry-focused research under the Australian Government’s $731 million Co-operative Research Centres Program.

The shortlisted applicants are:

  •     Advanced Medical Biotechnologies CRC
  •     Blue Economy CRC
  •     Future Battery Industries CRC
  •     Future Cities CRC
  •     Future Food Systems CRC
  •     SmartSat CRC

Announcing the short-list, Industry, Science and Technology Minister Karen Andrews said the CRC Program supported business-research engagement, fuelling Australian innovation and driving job creation.

“CRCs play a vital role in bringing together businesses and researchers from Australia and overseas to solve major industry challenges,” Andrews said.

“CRCs demonstrate how industry partnerships with the research community can deliver high value outcomes that improve competitiveness and productivity.

“I congratulate the six shortlisted applicants, selected as part of the 20th CRC round to undertake research in key industry sectors like advanced manufacturing, resources, energy, health, food, agriculture, and the environment.”

The short-listed applicants will now proceed to the next stage of assessment, which includes developing a business case and attending an interview with the CRC Advisory Committee.

The Coalition Government says it is facilitating business involvement in collaborative research to improve the competitiveness, productivity and sustainability of Australian industries, and the CRC program will help to create more jobs for Australians and foster economic growth.

The final outcome is expected to be announced early next year, with funding to commence by mid-2019.

Successful applicants must contribute at least the same amount in cash or in-kind contributions as they receive from government.
