Priority Industry Capability Innovation Program
The Priority Industry Capability Innovation Program (PICIP) provides direct support in the form of repayable, matched grants, to Australian defence companies to assist small to medium sized enterprises to pursue innovative defence industry projects.
The program supports Australia’s defence industry to develop, adopt and commercialise innovative technologies, methodologies, materials or systems in areas defined as PICs. The program aims to deliver greater assurance that the Australian Defence Force will receive cutting edge and innovative solutions to its material, systems, support and sustainment needs, to support its operational needs. It also supports the defence industry sector to make the most of business opportunities within Australia and overseas.
Applications for the PICIP are no longer being accepted. Contact your local Business Access Office on 1800 621 783 for further information on Defence industry programs.
