Key features of the third funding round

  • Maximum of NZ$10 million available for the third funding round. Successful projects are expected to be in the range of NZ$1-4 million and lasting up to four years in duration. Projects from Round 3 are expected to start from March 2015 and must end by 30 June 2019.
  • The third funding round follows the same two-stage application process as the previous rounds, beginning with submitting a short Expression Of Interest (EOI). Successful EOIs are then invited to submit full proposals. The call for EOIs is now open. EOIs must be submitted by 2 December 2013 (2pm New Zealand Standard Time). See Table 1 for further information on timings for Round 3.
  • Workshops providing feedback on the first two rounds of the Fund and areas that applicants should concentrate on in their proposals will be held in New Zealand (in Hamilton, Palmerston North and Lincoln) during the last week of August. Dates, times and venues for these meetings will be advised shortly. All presentations will be recorded and made available for those unable to attend.
