The minimum grant amount is $100,000.
The maximum grant amount is $3 million.
The grant amount will be up to 50 per cent of eligible grant project value.
The maximum grant period is 3 years.
You can use funding to support costs directly related to the project, including for:

- industry-focused education and training activities, such as internships and secondments between industry entities and research organisations.
- conferences, workshops, symposia related to the joint research
- related information sharing and communication initiatives related to the joint research.
Other costs may also be eligible for grant funding.
