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.
