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.
