The Digital Futures Fund
The Digital Futures Fund supports collaborative projects involving the development of information and communication technology (ICT) solutions that transform current business practices and deliver productivity benefits to Victorian small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The adoption of ICT has been demonstrated to drive productivity, innovation and improve the competitiveness of businesses. The program supports SMEs to overcome business challenges through the use of ICT by reducing barriers to specialist ICT resources, knowledge and technical expertise.
Expressions of Interest are now open for Stage one of Round two. Applications close at 2pm on Thursday 7 March 2013. For further information please click here.
Innovation Voucher Program
The Innovation Voucher Program is a new initiative of the Victorian Government that aims to improve the innovation capability and capacity of small and medium companies (SMEs) and publicly funded research organisations (PFROs). The program is separate but complementary to the Technology Voucher Program. It provides responsive and nimble funding to help SMEs access the facilities and know-how needed to innovate and to help PFROs improve their ability to service industry projects.
