Australian Space Research Program – New Funding Round

Motorists no longer need struggle with a bulky road map to find their way and people in remote Australia can communicate without a phone or internet signal thanks to satellite technology – all developed through breakthroughs in space research. The government established the Australian Space Research Program to develop Australia’s niche space capabilities and create job opportunities in industries of the future. Funding is available in two streams: education grants of between $200,000 and $1 million for university-led consortiums designed to encourage student participation in space-related study; and innovation grants of between $1 million and $5 million for consortia of Australian industry and researchers.Potential applicants can register to attend information sessions in Sydney or Brisbane. For details on these sessions and information on how to apply, visit www.space.gov.au.
