Happy New Year to all my readers.
I'm starting the New Year off with some good news from Queensland government. I recently received a letter advising me that the Queensland Sustainable Energy Innovation Fund (QSEIF) provides funding assistance for Queensland-based individuals or organisations to develop innovative technologies that reduce consumption of fossil fuels, water or greenhouse gas emissions.
According to the letter, QSEIF funding can offset up to 80% of external project costs. The cost of filing a patent application is recognised as eligible project expenditure up to a level of 10% of the project costs or a maximum of $10,000.
The appropriate time to apply for funding might be immediately after the initial novelty search. See here for my post on searching.
