Queensland Earth Observation Hub Calibration & Validation Projects

Applications for this round of funding are now open!

The Queensland Earth Observation Hub Calibration and Validation Projects Call aims at creating research to industry partnerships and empowering the space-related industry ecosystem of Queensland, creating State-based opportunities for industry-led R&D. This call is seeking expressions of interest (EOI) for projects that foster the creation and commercialisation of calibration and/or validation in research and innovation. Calibration and Validation Projects offers funding for a total cash budget up to $150,000, including required industry cash co-funding ration of 1:2, for projects of six to 12 months duration.

This program aims at creating research to industry partnerships and empowering the space-related industry ecosystem of Queensland, creating state-based opportunities for industry-led Research & Development (R&D). Projects must be calibration and/or validation related and focused on either:

  • translating research into business operations through R&D partnerships with an industry lead and a research partner; or
  • improving business operations through R&D partnerships with an industry lead and a research partner.
  • Project duration of six¬†to 12 months.

The Hub is specifically looking to support projects that will effectively harness research partner IP and capability to reduce or eliminate technical and/or market risks for the industry project partner, scale up of the existing products and services, or create a new product or service. Projects that include a clear end-customer as part of the project team are encouraged.
