New South Wales

The Department of Industry (Government of New South Wales) has commenced their programs called “Boosting Business Innovation” and “TechVouchers”. While the first is a two-year program that will help unlock access to technology, equipment, research and expertise to build an innovation ecosystem and stimulate economic growth right across NSW, through the second program you can be connected with an expert in a relevant field of research and embark on a joint research project. The program also enables access to high tech instruments and facilities that would otherwise be difficult to access.
