The Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Programme is administered by AusIndustry, a division within the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.
The CRC Programme aims to foster high quality research to solve industry-identified problems through industry-led and outcome-focused collaborative research partnerships between Industry Entities and Research Organisations.
The CRC Programme contains two funding streams:
CRCs to support medium to long term industry-led collaborative research
CRC Projects (CRC-P’s) to support short term, industry-led collaborative research
