About the CRC Program

The Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Program is an Australian Government initiative that was established in 1990 and funds industry-led collaborations between industry, researchers and end users.

The CRC Program links researchers with industry and government with a focus towards research application, and offers support through two elements:

  • Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) grants – supporting medium to long term industry-led collaborations, up to 10 years.
  • Cooperative Research Centres Projects (CRC-P) grants – supporting short term, industry-led collaborative research, up to 3 years.

Innovation and Science Australia and its CRC Advisory Committee provide strategic oversight of the CRC Program.
