Broadly speaking, for both Scoping Study Projects and General Projects, typically the submission process will involve two main stages:
(i) an Expression of Interest (EOI);
and for those that are supported,
(ii) a full proposal.
Project Ideas Initiation
The way in which a new project idea is initiated is important, so that the overall investment process can operate most effectively from the beginning. This is particularly relevant for research proposals emerging directly from Participants.
Blue Economy CRC Participants should contact the Blue Economy CRC Research Director or the relevant Program Leader/s, to discuss their project idea.
Based on that discussion, the Blue Economy CRC will provide Participants with initial advice as to whether the project idea should proceed.
If proceeding, the Project Participants will be required to identify the Project Leader, who will be responsible for managing the application process on behalf of the project team.
