Defence CRCs aim to develop technologies that:

  • improve Australia’s defence and national security capability
  • address priorities under the Next Generation Technologies Fund.

Defence CRCs use program funding to partner with researchers and industry – particularly small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Each Defence CRC develops project proposals based on its priorities. It then invites Defence CRC participants and other organisations to apply for each project.

Your organisation may also apply to participate in a Defence CRC when it forms or any time after.
