Expressions of Interest (EOI) are now open for the Made in Victoria – Industry R&D Infrastructure Fund.

The $15 million Made in Victoria – Industry R&D Infrastructure Fund will provide matched grant funding of between $250,000 and up to $2 million to eligible businesses in Victoria, to invest in new or enhanced R&D infrastructure to support the growth of Victoria’s R&D capability across key industry sectors.

The grants will support new infrastructure and sophisticated equipment such as measurement instruments, testing equipment, imaging and sensing technologies, and clean room facilities and will be open to businesses that perform R&D as part of their operations, including R&D service providers.

    The fund will also help accelerate projects in new energy, health technology, food manufacturing, defence and aerospace, and advanced technology – key sectors identified in the Government’s Made in Victoria: 2030 Manufacturing Statement including:

    • health technologies, including medtech, biotech, pharma and consumer healthcare
    • digital and advanced technologies, including advanced materials, robotics, AI (Artificial Intelligence), 3D-printing, and quantum technologies.

    This initiative is also targeted at enabling high quality collaboration and mutually valued research between industry, universities and/or research providers and supply chains by supporting R&D infrastructure.

    Applicants must clearly demonstrate how funding will support further growth in business expenditure on R&D. All grants require a minimum 1:1 co-contribution from the applicant.
