Each year the Northern Territory Research and Innovation Board invites applications for project grants under the Northern Territory Research and Innovation Fund.
Grants are awarded in 3 categories: research, innovation and proof-of-concept.
Any project that demonstrates a benefit to the Northern Territory will be considered. However, it is essential that applications are of a high standard, with clearly explained objectives, methods and outcomes, and that they support Northern Territory research priorities. Assistance is available with preparing applications if required.

3. Proof-of-concept grants
Do you have a new project or idea but are not sure whether it is viable?
Proof-of-concept grants are offered in recognition that some research and innovation projects require funding in the initial stages of their development. This grant enables individuals and small teams to discover at modest cost whether their newly developed project or idea has the potential to expand into a larger scale project of economic and/or social benefit to the Northern Territory. Allocation of funds will depend on the quality and number of applications received in any given year. Funding from the Board for a project will not normally exceed $10,000.
