Bushfire fund to support local innovators
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Mr Adam Crouch said a government Bushfire Commercialisation Fund will support local innovators translate their cutting-edge research into practical solutions.
"The devastating Black Summer of 2019-20 had a lasting impact on communities right across our State," said Mr Crouch.
"This funding will ensure our emergency services have the best technology that will improve bushfire detection, preparation and response and help keep our State safe.
"A total of $16 million over three years has been allocated, with the first round of funding offering grants of between $200,000 and $8 million to individuals, companies, research institutions and universities, to help them commercialise their research," Mr Crouch said.
