The Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) Program is the peak funding initiative of the Australian Government for industry-focused R&D.
The CRC Program supports industry-led collaborative research between industry, researchers and the community for a term of up to 10 years. CRC partners solve industry identified problems and improve the competitiveness, productivity and sustainability of Australian industries.
The CRC program aims to increase R&D capacity in small to medium enterprises, and encourage industry adoption of research outputs, establish industry-focused education and training program, and finally provide tertiary opportunities that builds future capability and capacity. To date the Australian Government has funded more than 220 CRC’s valued in excess of $4.5 billion.
CRC Longevity is applying for grant funding as part of CRC Round 22.
