Global Connections Fund
The $4.9 million Global Connections Fund supports global SME-to-researcher collaborations to enable viable projects to grow and test commercialisation in industries of strategic growth in Australia.
There are two types of grants under the Fund: Bridging Grants and Priming Grants.
Bridging Grants are larger grants of up to $50,000 designed as seed funding capital to enable viable projects to grow in scope and scale, test commercialisation and proof-of-concept activities.
Priming Grants are small grants of around $7,000 to enable Australian SMEs and Australian researchers to meet and collaborate with international partners to further develop their ideas.
These grants are administered by the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE).
