$8.5 million on offer via the AustCyber Projects Fund

Applications for expressions of interest for the next round of AustCyber's Projects Fund close on 12 July, with $8.5 million of matched funding up for grabs this year.

AustCyber opened applications for this year's funding round in June. The fund was established as a three-year initiative, with $6.5 million allocated during previous funding rounds in 2018.

Organisations or consortia can submit expressions of interest with AustCyber by establishing that they are eligible to apply for the Projects Fund.

Eligibility and merit criteria include the ability to self-fund at least 50% of the project costs, the level of impact a project would have on the Australian cybersecurity ecosystem, and applicants' ability to meet predefined technology readiness levels.

Expressions of interest will be assessed by AustCyber and successful applicants will be invited to pitch their proposals to a panel of experts.

This panel will draw up a shortlist of applicants that will be invited to submit a full application, with the final winners selected by the AustCyber board.
