About the selection process
The Minister selects projects that best meet the objectives of the program.
Applications are assessed using a three-stage process. For more details, consult the assessment criteria section of the Connect to Innovate application guide.
About the negotiation process
Once a project is selected, it is conditionally approved pending a due diligence check and the negotiation of contribution agreements between the Minister and funding recipients.
Project details may change throughout the negotiation process.
Selected projects may also be withdrawn or cancelled for a variety of reasons. For example, a funding recipient may decide to withdraw their project.
