We’re interested in working with those who have an idea that could deliver transformational and impactful change in the Indo-Pacific region. We want to find solutions that have the potential to deliver development outcomes more effectively, efficiently or inclusively.

We are particularly interested in finding sustainable ideas that have a path to scale and the possibility of replication if the testing or pilot stage demonstrates success.

There are a number of ways to collaborate through with innovation@DFAT:

  • New ideas from any organisation or individual, in any partner country can be submitted to the Global Innovation Fund

  • To find, share and help breakthrough innovations; search for funding; connect with other resources to test and scale innovations; and stay on top of the latest trends in development innovation, access the Global Innovation Exchange

  • Organisations with an innovation should contact their local Embassy or High Commission in the first instance for advice on partnership opportunities, provided that they are located in a country where Australia has a bilateral aid program

  • If you are an Australian Government officer with an interest in accessing the Innovation Resource Facility, visit the IRF webpage.
