Make your application competitive – demystifying the CRC and CRC Projects application and assessment process
Workshop, Wednesday 16 May, 0900–1030
CRC and CRC Projects Program Managers Nicole Elliott and Martin Dent from the Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science will present a workshop focusing on the two streams of the program and the differences between them. The aim of the workshop is to assist with demystifying the application and assessment process so your application is competitive and doesn’t repeat common mistakes.
In particular, the workshop will focus on the key requirements of an application for a CRC or CRC Project, clarifying the difference between each stream and why some applications rank higher than others. The workshop will discuss how to ensure that your application demonstrates an industry led and outcome focussed collaborative partnership that will address an industry identified problem.
The assessment process will also be discussed to enable workshop participants to understand the process between an application being submitted and receiving the letter with the funding outcomes.
The team will also present historical data on the program over time, giving insights into trends over previous rounds.
