The Incubator Initiative supports early career researchers working with regional grape and wine associations and groups on regionally specific research.
Applications for 2020 will open in May 2020.
Projects will be developed to answer a specific regional need, and researchers will work with our Regional Program partners and deliver the findings to grapegrowers and winemakers in the region.
Up to $20,000 is available for successful applicants to undertake the projects, with this funding matched by a co-contribution – cash or in-kind – from the organisation where the researcher is employed.
Who can apply?
The Incubator Initiative is open to early career researchers working for an Australian-based research organisation. Early career is defined as having five years or fewer of research experience since completing a PhD or Master’s degree. Applications will also be accepted from researchers who have submitted a PhD or Master’s thesis and are awaiting the outcome.
