AutismCRC: Investment round

Autism CRC is now accepting Expressions of Interest for projects that support our vision to see autistic people empowered to discover and use their diverse strengths and interests. 

Investment Round eligibility and opportunities

In this investment round AutismCRC is looking for projects that fall into two categories: Innovation Projects and Utilisation Projects.

This is the last round of investments from funding awarded with the 2013 CRC Program agreement. Therefore, all projects are to be completed, including final reporting, before or by 31 January 2021.

There will be no opportunities to extend projects beyond this time frame. Please bear this in mind when developing your proposal, as this will form part of the assessment criteria

All projects must address the objectives of one or more of our three programs: Early Years, School Years and Adulthood.

Innovation Project applications are open to all industry sectors, research disciplines and community sectors. However, teams must include representatives from at least two (preferably more) Autism CRC Participant organisations, and will preferably be led or co-led by an end-user organisation.

Utilisation Project applications must demonstrate how they assist Autism CRC to meet our utilisation and dissemination objectives for existing project outputs. Teams must involve one (preferably more) Autism CRC Participant organisations and preferably be led or co-led by an end-user organisation.

It is highly desirable that Applicants and their Project Plans demonstrate inclusive research practice with the autistic and autism communities.
