The Modern Manufacturing Initiative is a key element of the Australian Government’s Modern Manufacturing Strategy, which aims to help Australian manufacturers scale-up, compete internationally and create jobs.
The Manufacturing Integration Stream supports projects that integrate Australian businesses into domestic and international value chains, propelling their goods and services into new markets. It provides co-funding to encourage linkages between local businesses and domestic and international firms, increasing scale, supply capacity, and the ability to innovate. It will also facilitate the adoption of product standards and greater sharing and transfer of knowledge.
The University is not eligible to lead these grants, but the University may partner with an eligible Industry lead.
There will be 6 grant opportunities under the Manufacturing Integration Stream that align with the National Manufacturing Priorities:
- Medical Products
- Resources Technology and Critical Minerals Processing
- Food and Beverage
- Recycling and Clean Energy
On offer are co-funding grants of between $1 million to $20 million, up to 50% of the eligible project expenditure.
