Eligible startups and small or medium enterprises (SMEs) can apply for grant funding to solve 3 key challenges: 

  • Increasing the energy efficiency of commercial fishing operations, led by Fisheries Research and Development Corporation.
  • Powering safe drinking water for Australian First Nations remote communities, led by Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water.
  • Alternative packaging for premium Australian wine, led by Wine Australia.
