Cooperative Research Centres
Cooperative Research Centres Program
The Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) program is an Australian Government Initiative administered by AusIndustry, a division within the Department of Industry.
The CRC program supports medium to long-term end user driven research collaborations to address major challenges facing Australia. CRCs pursue solutions to these challenges that are innovative, of high impact and capable of being effectively deployed by the end users.
The CRC program guidelines cover all aspects of the program, including selection round requirements.
The Minister for Industry has overall responsibility for the CRC program.
The Minister appoints an advisory committee, the CRC committee, to advise on the selection and evaluation of CRCs and on the conditions to apply to the provision of funds under the program.
