Cyber Cooperation Program Open Grants process

Australia-India Cyber and Critical Technology Partnership (AICCTP) Grant Program Round 2 Now Open

Call for applications by 18 October 2021

The Australia-India Cyber and Critical Technology Partnership (AICCTP) Grant Program Round 2 is now open for applications until 18 October 2021. 

Australia and India, with our technical expertise and strong track record in innovation and entrepreneurship, are emerging as key players in the global development of critical and emerging technologies. Over the course of the next decade, and beyond, these technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), next generation telecommunications (5G/6G), Internet of Things (IoT) and quantum computing, will disrupt the way we live and interact, at all levels of society and business.

This grants program exists to further stimulate and enhance practical cooperation and collaboration between our two countries to help shape a global technology environment that meets our shared vision of an open, free, rules-based Indo-Pacific.

Applications should note that the scope and eligibility criteria for Grant Round 2 are unchanged from Round 1.

Grant Round 1 included funding awarded to develop ethical frameworks and best practices for emerging quantum technologies, to operationalise ethical frameworks in the critical technology supply chains of global companies and to address privacy and security challenges in next generation telecommunications networks. We encourage potential applicants for Round 2 to read more about these successful projects before applying.  

To find out more, including further background on the program, eligibility requirements and how to apply, please visit the AICCTP webpage on Australia's High Commission in India website.
