Innovation Partnership Grants

Innovation Partnership Grants provide funding to scale already tested activities to address emerging challenges or opportunities in any sector of Vietnam’s innovation ecosystem and strengthen Vietnam-Australia partnerships. The grants are competitive and are delivered in two rounds.

The Aus4Innovation Program aims to fund technologies or activities with:

  • an existing proof of concept,
  • an articulated market segment or path to impact, and
  • an existing relationship between an Australian and a Vietnamese entity.

Who can apply?

If you’re an Australian entity, collaborating with a partner in Vietnam and you have established existing research that has an anticipated pathway to scale, impact and sustainability, you are eligible to apply.

To be successful, applicants will:

  • build on existing partnerships
  • involve partners who are viable entities
  • meet an innovation need in Vietnam
  • comply with the requirements of Official Development Assistance
  • contribute to the overarching A4I program objective.
