30 proposals received for Stage 2 Industry Research Projects

Sense-T had received 30 Expressions of Interest for its $6 million Stage 2 Industry Research Projects by the deadline for submissions on 15 March.

Acting Director Amanda Castray said the many excellent proposals from Tasmanian industry and researchers included work that could make an important contribution to the Tasmanian economy and community.

"We'd love to be able to fund all 30 projects but unfortunately that isn't possible," Ms Castray said.

"All of the submissions have the potential to deliver exciting and innovative sensor and data research that would help to solve practical problems and support better decision making to help boost jobs and growth across the economy.

"We're now reviewing the proposals to identify the 10 or so that will receive a share of the $6 million in Australian Government funding provided through the Tasmanian Jobs and Growth Plan.

"The 30 proposals cover a range of agricultural projects, along with potential research in health, tourism, infrastructure freight and logistics, and new financial services.

"We aim to publicly announce the successful projects in April, and I thank all of the organisations and researchers who've submitted such high quality proposals."
