Pilot & Seed Funding

An essential component of the Sydney Catalyst program is funding to support the development of new concepts and projects.

This includes projects identified and developed under the direction and leadership of the Sydney Catalyst Governing Council (GC) and other governing and strategic committees (ie. 'top-down' research) and member research initiatives (ie. 'bottom-up' research).

Sydney Catalyst is committed to providing research initiative funding in support of new concept and project development.
