The Defence Innovation Network offers up to $200,000 of funding to support collaboration between member universities, industry and Defence. Pilot Projects should demonstrate high potential to satisfy an existing or emerging Defence capability need or defence industry need.

In 2019-20, the DIN Pilot Project grant scheme has $650,000 of funding available. In June 2019, the NSW DIN hosted a number of workshops attended by representatives from ADF, DST Group and industry. The workshops delivered various problem statements, which are the subject of this call.

Submissions are invited by university researchers for proposed collaborative research grants. DIN will provide funding support for a limited number of proposals that directly address these problem statements and demonstrate the best team fit and inter-university collaboration.

DIN Pilot Project Funding Scheme aims to conduct a rapid feasibility study on new ideas for Defence and develop these ideas into concept or technology that can attract further investment from the government or industry.
