Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews said six businesses have been granted $1 million each under the Business Research and Innovation Initiative (BRII) to develop their solutions.
“Some businesses are working to use intelligent data to keep our tourism industry at the leading edge, while others are ensuring we manage risks of hitchhiking pests on shipping containers,” Minister Andrews said.
“This funding will help businesses which have completed feasibility studies further develop their innovative solutions.
“The BRII is another example of the Morrison Government supporting businesses which are using technology to solve national problems and deliver essential services to Australians.”
Industry Spec Drones Pty Ltd (NSW) and Trellis Data Pty Ltd (ACT) will each receive $1 million to help protect Australia’s unique native flora and fauna from pests, diseases and contaminants that can arrive on sea containers.
Industry Spec Drones uses unmanned flight technology to manage biosecurity risks, while Trellis Data uses a variety of detection technologies, including microwave and infrared, to manage potential threats.
Other projects to receive funding include:
Challenge: Intelligent data to transform tourism service delivery
Challenge: Automating complex determinations for Australian Government information
