New OpportunitiesCRC-P grants open – a greener recycling industry

The Morrison Government has announced a new $20 million commitment for innovative projects to grow our domestic recycling industry. This funding will be made available through Round 8 of the Government’s Cooperative Research Centres Projects (CRC-P) grants which open today.

In addition to the funding for projects in plastic recycling, $10.8 million is available for critical minerals projects. The round is also open to general applications from all industry sectors.

Note that applications must be led by industry and Flinders University can participate as the Australian research organisation.

Each CRC-P must include at least:

  • two Australian industry entities including a least one SME, and
  • one Australian research organisation

CRC-P grants are up to $3 million, over a period of up to three years.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the funding was part of his Government’s commitment to work with the states to establish a timetable to ban the export of waste plastic, paper, glass and tyres. “By engaging industry and researchers we can make sure we’re seeing these changes introduced in a way that cuts costs for businesses and ultimately even creates jobs.”
Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews said the funding would create Australian jobs, while reducing global plastic pollution. “Boosting our onshore plastic recycling industry has the potential to create over three times as many jobs as exporting our plastic waste, ensuring a more sustainable and prosperous future.”
Recent figures suggest only 12 per cent of the 103kg of plastic waste generated per person in Australia each year is recycled, mostly overseas.

Applications for Round 8 will close at 5:00pm AEST, 24 September 2019. Internal closing date will be 10 September to allow for approval of co-investment where applicable and processing participant declaration forms. Please contact Mary Lyons, Senior Research Grants Officer (IIGI), Research Development and Support with your intention to apply.

Information on how to apply, and details of previous grant recipients is available at www.business.gov.au/crc-p.

Flinders Research NewsFrontiers Program Feedback for next Round sought by Research Australia

MRFF

Research Australia has provided feedback to their member organisations from the first round of the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) Frontiers Program and is seeking feedback on what adjustments/what could be explained more clearly in the guidelines for the next round, due to open in October.

Nadia Levin, CEO and Managing Director of Research Australia is Co-Chair of the MRFF Frontiers Program Assessment Panel and keen to hear input from the research community.

The first round of Frontiers applications highlighted to the Panel that there were differing expectations about what the Program is and what it will deliver. This was evident in the applications themselves and also in subsequent reactions from the Research Australia members in the research community.

While the successful applicants for Round 1 were quite different from each other, they had several things in common and there are already some lessons learned that will inform the process for the next round:

  • Proposals need to clearly define the problem they are seeking to address and articulate the solution. Frontiers is about big ideas, but there also needs to a genuine need and a clear and deliverable goal.
  • While the proposed solution has to be feasible it also needs to be bold and innovative. Frontiers potentially offers ten years of funding, so it is about more than just the next incremental step.
  • There needs to be a clear articulation of how the proposal plans to deliver a real outcome. Securing the initial year’s funding is only the first stage; applicants need to be thinking of the long-term right from the start.
  • Understanding the global context and the point of differentiation in terms of the approach and/or the technology is critical. Remember, the judging panel has international experts and a proposal that seeks to simply duplicate research happening elsewhere is not likely to impress.
  • Track record, the team and governance are all critical. Again, the ultimate goal is to secure up to ten years’ funding. Is the proposed structure sustainable, and can it accommodate change and expansion over time as the project progresses towards the outcome?

As a previous or potential new applicant, Nadia Levin is happy to receive feedback on specific ideas on how the guidelines could be improved. She can be contacted directly via email - nadia.levin@researchaustralia.org.
