The NSW Defence Innovation Network (DIN) is calling for proposals from small businesses to work with university partners to accelerate the development of technology concepts that can bring innovative solutions to Defence. Up to $50,000 in 1:1 matched funding will be available to companies to work with DIN member universities in NSW.
The deadline for proposals is 6 March 2020.
The funding is allocated on a competitive basis and proposals must address the 10 technology investment priorities of the Next Generation Technologies Fund (NGTF). The key objective of DIN Seed Projects is to conduct a rapid feasibility study on new ideas for Defence and develop these ideas into concept or technology that can attract further investment from the government or industry.
