METS Ignited Project Funds

METS Ignited Project Fund - supporting industry-wide collaboration

The METS Ignited Project Fund is a $15.6m, four-year initiative to support, encourage and fund sector-wide collaboration. The funding is provided by the Australian Government as part of the Growth Centre initiative. It is open to METS companies across Australia.

How does it work?

METS Ignited is looking for minimum matched investment for collaborative, industry-led projects with clear commercialisation applications.

We are seeking to invest in innovative ideas to improve the productivity, competitiveness and innovative capacity of the sector, to deliver results on a national scale that have sector-wide impact including for SMEs.

The application process

The METS Ignited Project Fund can be accessed by industry through an Expression of Interest (EOI) process. The first round of EOIs have closed.

Next funding round

The second round of funding is now closed. Thank you to all who attended our information sessions and submitted an application.
