CEI Round 7 is now open!

CEI Round 7 is now open, with applications closing on 11 January 2023.

Based on industry feedback received, several changes have been made for CEI Round 7 including:

  • Doubling the amount of Program funding from $2.5 million to $5 million
  • Increasing the maximum grant from $200,000 to $250,000 - enabling larger, more sophisticated projects to be undertaken
  • Encouraging more project diversity
  • Supporting collaboration across the industry through regional proposals 
  • Broadening the areas of interest - new statewide focus
  • Seeking more innovative proposals
  • Successful recipients invited to present results at GSQ events
