Call For Proposals

Woolgrower levy payer and Australian Government investors in Australian Wool Innovation expect collaboration with other Research and Development Corporations (RDCs).

AWI is interested in receiving project proposals at any time. To explore this opportunity please contact the below relevant AWI program managers.

AWI's Project Initiation Guidelines can be found here.

Partnerships between AWI and other RDCs ensure sharing of research knowledge, increase the total funding pool for projects of common interest to speed up research, give RDCs a stake in more projects at less cost per project and progress shared agricultural problems which otherwise would not be tackled.

A stocktake of AWI’s collaborative co-investment activities across the RDC network in 2018 can be accessed here.

A call for proposals for 2020/21 funding will not be held in 2019 or 2020. To discuss project opportunities for limited uncommitted budget please contact relevant AWI program managers directly.
