Smart Cities and Suburbs Program now open

The Australian Government has announced $50 million competitive Smart Cities and Suburbs Program. The program will support projects that apply innovative technology-based solutions to urban challenges. The program encourages eligible organisations – local governments, private companies, research organisations and not for profit bodies – to deliver collaborative smart city projects that improve the liveability, productivity and sustainability of Australian cities, suburbs and towns.

The program involves two components:

  • A granting component which opened for applications on 17 March and will close on 30 June 2017. For more information click here
  • An incubation package which is open for registrations here.
