Tech Vouchers - Up to $50,000 in research grants now available

The NSW Government’s COVID-19 TechVoucher program is now open for applications.

The COVID-19 TechVoucher program is a co-funding initiative aimed at providing support to startups, scaleups or small to medium enterprises (SMEs) that have technology-rich solutions that directly address the impact of COVID-19.

The voucher program has two funding streams aimed at supporting collaboration between startups or SMEs and Publicly Funded Research Organisations (PFROs), including Australian Catholic University.

Examples of activities funded by TechVouchers include:

  • access to research facilities and equipment such as electron microscopes, medical imaging, and other PRFO delivery partner facilities
  • product or process design, such as engineering or technical design expertise to determine prototype structure, function or materials
  • validating or demonstrating technical capabilities of a product, process or technology including clinical trials and in-market validation
  • enhancing existing product capabilities or enabling entry to international markets.
