Anything that will generate commercial outcomes in the near term (within 2-3 years) such as: technology partnerships; offtake agreements; market entry strategies, investment/business cases; pilot projects; new product development opportunities; infrastructure or equipment procurement for new market opportunities, breakthrough innovations etc.
The engagement is backed by both governments, helping to reduce risk for new market engagement/expansion as Katalis will be co-sponsoring.
If you are successful, the expectation is you will co-invest. Your investment can include things such as funds, time, IP, personnel etc. This increases ownership of the activity to ensure it is a real partnership between a beneficiary and Katalis and improves the likelihood that the activity will deliver sustainable outcomes.
Submissions are due on Wednesday, 15 March 2023. Submissions will be assessed and suitable participants will be invited to a briefing to explain next steps. Successful concepts will progress to development of a detailed Activity Proposal. If this is approved by Katalis, you will then need to sign an MoU, with a view to commencing the activity in the second half of 2023.
