The Australian Government is manufacturing a new future for our nation. Manufacturing is critical to a modern Australian economy—a key part of almost every supply chain that adds significant value to all sectors.

Under the Modern Manufacturing Strategy road maps for 6 key areas of focus were developed with industry to set out plans for industry and government to strengthen Australia’s manufacturing capability. The road maps have been led by industry taskforces to identify and set a future vision for the priority areas with clear goals, opportunities and actions over the next 2, 5 and 10 years.

Funding available under this road map

New funding opportunities for this National Manufacturing Priority area will be available soon.

Space is one of six priority areas under the Australian Government’s $1.5 billion Modern Manufacturing Strategy.

Businesses with projects in the space sector are now able to apply for support under our Modern Manufacturing Initiative.

Grants will be available for companies to commercialise new products and processes or integrate into global supply chains.

To guide the types of projects we will back in space manufacturing, we have released an industry-led road map.

From products launched into space like nano and small satellites, through to space components like sensors and communication arrays – Australia has a number of unique opportunities across space manufacturing.

This initiative is about supporting manufacturers to:

  • commercialise their great ideas
  • scale-up their production
  • integrate into global supply chains
  • and create jobs for more Australians.
