The DSI Collaborative Research Grant Scheme provides funding to enable industry and/or DST Group to undertake collaborative research with DSI Participating universities, consistent with the Institute’s technology themes. It helps to:

  • Facilitate defence-relevant research engagement between universities, industry, DST Group and Defence organisations; and
  • Connect SMEs to research and expertise in order to strengthen SME participation in defence by providing funding that helps to address financial barriers to collaboration and that will produce activities with the potential to lead to larger projects.

Collaborative Research Grants can be used to undertake any collaboration that meets the defined criteria. Grants are awarded on a competitive basis.

The DSI makes no provision to approve or to fully fund every proposal submitted to the Grant scheme. The DSI reserves the right to reject proposals without consideration. See
