CSIRO has allocated funds to provide investment funding through the AGP Program to high potential, technology-receptive small and medium enterprises (SMEs) so they can access CSIRO research and development (R&D) capability and intellectual property.
The AGP Program is designed to assist SMEs overcome existing technical issues, therefore providing them with an opportunity to significantly accelerate their growth in high impact industries that are aligned with the capabilities of CSIRO’s National Research Flagships Program. This program encompasses the following Flagships:
- Climate Adaptation
- Energy Transformed
- Food Futures
- Future Manufacturing
- Light Metals
- Minerals Down Under
- Preventative Health
- Water for a Healthy Country
- Wealth from Oceans.
In exchange for providing this funding CSIRO, through the AGP Program, will seek to secure a return on its investment.
