Cooperative Research Centre for Developing Northern Australia

The Cooperative Research Centre for Developing Northern Australia (CRCNA) is investing $75m of Commonwealth funds over ten years to support industry-led co-funded research collaborations, disseminate research outcomes and ensure decision-makers have a strong evidence base to plan future investment for Northern Australia. 

Our investment in research and development will develop a responsive, useful and utilised evidence-base to drive and support the long-term, sustainable economic development of Northern Australia.

The CRCNA acknowledges and pays respects to the Traditional Custodians of the lands and seas across Australia on which our project participants, research stakeholders and members live and work, and to their Elders past, present and future.  We acknowledge our First Nations peoples' ongoing connection to country. The CRCNA pays respect to the Wulgurukaba and Bindal people as the Traditional Custodians of the land on which the CRCNA's head office stands.
