The International Clean Innovation Researcher Networks grant aims to bring together Australian and international researchers to collaborate in clean technology advances.

The program will support the development and implementation of international researcher networks focused on accelerating clean innovation. Research should support technologies needed to deliver the Australian Government’s emissions reduction policies, including renewable energy (solar, wind, storage, grid integration), green metals, and their supply chains.

The program will focus on researcher networks between academic organisations, research or technology institutes, or think tanks. A network can cover a spectrum of collaborations, such as a consortium, working group or a community of practice, with an aim to develop new joint-research projects or materially advance existing projects with international partners. This program will help develop or expand domestic networks between organisations, while building linkages with international partners.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • increase collaboration in the Australian research community on clean innovation
  • establish new, and enhance existing, international researcher and industry networks to support efforts on clean innovation pathways
  • secure international support for Australian research and projects to produce new or enhanced research outcomes
  • facilitate Australian researchers to participate in live events (including in-person or virtually) including conferences and workshops specific to their network, e.g. Mission Innovation programs, with demonstrated impact to advance technology development
  • create sustainable research, development and deployment (RD&D) networks that have a viable funding model after the end of the grant period.
