Member Update: Launch of the Global Innovation Linkages programme

11th August, 2016

Earlier this week the Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science, the Hon Greg Hunt MP, announced the launch of the $18 million Global Innovation Linkages (GIL) Programme, an initiative under the National Innovation and Science Agenda (NISA).

The programme will provide grants of up to AU$1 million (exclusive of GST) per project and will be provided over a maximum of four years. The programme will support a small number of projects to assist Australian businesses and researchers to collaborate with global partners on projects with a strategic focus and leading-edge research and development. Applications are open from 8 August 2016 to 20 October 2016.

A series of nation-wide information sessions designed for Australian businesses and researchers will be held between 22 August – 12 September 2016.

The programme guidelines and the online application form are available on www.business.gov.au/GIL
