Strong interest in $6m Stage 2 Projects

Sense-T Acting Director Amanda Castray today reminded proponents they now have less than 30 days to submit Expressions of Interest for $6 million in Stage 2 Industry Research Projects funded by the Australian Government's Tasmanian Jobs and Growth Plan.

Ms Castray said Sense-T had received strong interest from industry and research bodies across Tasmania.

Information sessions and meetings have been held in Hobart, Launceston and the North West for people and organisations interested in undertaking research which uses sensors and data to support innovation, job creation and economic growth.

More than 30 potential projects have been identified so far across industries such as health, tourism, aquaculture, agriculture, forestry, mining and environmental management.

Around ten projects, to be completed by the end of December 2016, will be chosen to receive up to $600 000 each for research that solves real-world industry and community problems.

For more information on how to apply before the 15 March deadline, go to Stage 2 Projects.
