The Queensland Earth Observation Hub is inviting potential participants to submit applications for its latest funding round.

The round involves three different programs.

The first stream, called the Partnering Program, is intended to support industry-led projects with a commercial or potential commercial application and which demonstrate a technology, create a new product or service, or expand a current service offering.

The Partnering Program offers funding for a total cash budget up to $300,000, on the basis of a required industry cash co-funding ratio of 1:2, for projects of up to 12 months duration.

The second program is the Mobility Scheme, which aims to facilitate secondments or placements in either direction between Queensland universities and businesses to tackle specific industry challenges, facilitate knowledge transfer, and help develop and upskill staff.

The Scheme provides opportunities for industry representatives to work within a university, or for university researchers, academic or professional staff to work within a business, for up to six months. Salary and on-costs will be funded, and the funding or seniority of the secondee is not limited.

The third program involves Calibration and Validation Projects that aim to develop research-to-industry partnerships and empower Queensland’s space-related industry ecosystem. Funding for a total cash budget up to $150,000 is available, including required industry cash co-funding ratio of 1:2, for projects of 6- to 12-months duration.

Submissions for these programs close at 5:00pm Friday, 2 August 2024.
