GRANT: Scaling existing Australia–Vietnam Innovation Partnerships

Following the success of Round 1 of the Innovation Partnership Grants in 2019, the Aus4Innovation team is delighted to inform you of the opening of the Round 2. Again in 2020, Aus4Innovation will provide targeted funds to existing Australia-Vietnam activities that address emerging challenges or opportunities in any sector of Vietnam’s innovation system.

The theme of Round 2 is “Scaling existing Australia–Vietnam Innovation Partnerships”. In this round, grants of between AUD 100,000 and AUD 1,000,000 will be awarded on a competitive basis to existing partnerships between Australian and Vietnamese institutions for already tested activities that can demonstrate a clear pathway to scale and help the Vietnamese innovation ecosystem to become more productive, resilient, and cohesive. 

Grant topics are not constrained by theme, but those aligned with Vietnam’s development needs, Australia’s competitive strength, and other Aus4Innovation program work streams will be favourably considered.

A detailed Guideline of this grant can be found here [here], along with some Frequently Asked Questions as a quick reference [here].

Given your extensive engagement in the innovation area, we would very much appreciate it if you could share these information with your contacts, who could be potential applicants.

Should you have any further questions, or need clarification on the Guideline, or the application process, please contact the program office at: [email protected]

We look forward to receiving your innovative ideas and supporting you to realise them.
