NSW’s really real-word research

The feds have a committee working out ways to translate research to output. NSW is on it

The state government announces competitive funding for small and medium enterprises to address practical problems. Sort of like the Cooperative Research Centre Projects, programme, writ small.

The problems in search of solutions are in five areas;

* reducing the “digital divide” suffered by regional and remote communities and to support emergency services

* navigation tech for vision-impaired people using public transport

* technology to “more rapidly and effectively quantify” numbers and locations of koalas

* minimise waste from discarded sterile wrap and personal protective equipment

* remove micro-plastics from linen-services waste water

Businesses that want to compete for funding “are encouraged” to make joint applications with state-based universities and other research organisations.

But the SME must lead the project.
