Advanced Manufacturing Ecosystem Fund
The Advanced Manufacturing Ecosystem (AME) Fund of $7.5 million seeks to build the advanced manufacturing ecosystem in the Northern Territory. The fund aims to grow advanced manufacturing capabilities and increase investment in and output of advanced manufacturing activity in the Northern Territory, and grow the number of advanced manufacturing jobs located in the Northern Territory.
The AME fund will provide grants to industry led advanced manufacturing projects located in the Northern Territory across the Territory’s priority sectors.
The AME fund has two funding streams:
Commercialise new products and processes, including transitioning a new product or process from prototype stage to full commercial operations
Support early stage, fast fail, grants to support small scale and pilot research projects in advanced manufacturing
