Innovation is a major driver of business growth, however many start-ups and small businesses can often face barriers, such as lack of technical expertise or funding, when trying to access research and development (R&D) to explore new opportunities.
CSIRO's Kick-Start program helps start-ups and small businesses overcome some of these barriers to pursue R&D activities, by providing an end-to-end facilitation service, including:
- help with articulating your research question
- connecting businesses with relevant CSIRO researcher expertise and capability
- matched funding support to improve the affordability or expand the scope of R&D services
