Consultation on grant opportunity guidelines for the next round of 5G Innovation Initiative to close 14 January 2022

Have your say on the Australian 5G Innovation Initiative round 2 draft grant guidelines.

We’re seeking feedback to identify how the guidelines can be improved to encourage projects from a range of sectors and businesses.

Your views will help inform the design of the final grant opportunity guidelines, which will be released when Round 2 applications open.

This consultation follows the Government’s announcement that a further $20 million in funding for the next round of the 5G Innovation Initiative will be made available.

The second round of the 5G Innovation Initiative will build on the results of Round 1, aiming to create a pipeline of trials demonstrating different 5G applications. The trials will include rigorous and replicable testing of technologies that make use of 5G. Through the program, we’re aiming to develop Australia’s 5G ecosystem and drive productivity growth.

Submissions are closing soon. Have your say on the draft guidelines by 14 January 2022.
