About

SME Connect is designed to help Australian SMEs overcome potential barriers to innovation through a series of dollar-matched funding and support programs that link those businesses with the expertise and facilities of Australia’s best research organisations. With experienced facilitators located across the country, SME Connect acts as a single point of contact for SMEs to interact with the Australian research sector, using their national network to locate the very best research capability to meet each SME’s individual needs, whether that be CSIRO or other research organisation. Our team works with SMEs to understand their business needs and identify research-opportunities, facilitates connections into the research sector and is on hand to manage the partnership from start to completion.
