We are seeking input on the design of the first round of the Australian 5G Innovation Initiative (the Initiative). The Initiative will support emerging business and commercial uses of 5G.

The program aims to create a pipeline of trials demonstrating different 5G applications, including Internet of Things applications, which will help build Australia’s 5G ecosystem. The trials will undertake rigorous and replicable testing of technologies that make use of 5G.

The Initiative is part of the Government’s JobMaker Digital Business Plan to accelerate the digital transformation of Australian businesses and create jobs. The Initiative will provide two rounds of grants funding, each with $10 million available.

We are seeking stakeholder views to identify ways that the guidelines can best encourage proposals from a range of sectors and businesses.

Feedback will inform the design of the grant opportunity guidelines for the first round of the Initiative.
