The Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program encourages and facilitates industry-led collaboration. The program aims for increased involvement of SMEs, through reduction of perceived barriers to their participation.
The CRC Program is structured into two streams of activity: the traditional CRC which supports medium–to long term industry-led collaborations; and
CRC-Projects (CRC-Ps) which support short term, industry-led research CRC-Ps will be smaller collaborations operating on short project timelines with simpler governance and administration arrangements and less funding
