Expressions of interest

The CRCNA has the flexibility to allocate funding towards research projects using different Expressions of Interest processes at different times throughout the year. These are:

Open funding calls

  • The CRCNA outlines the research focus and critical research questions to be addressed by projects submitted through an open Expressions of Interest process where research proposals are assessed on their merits.

Targeted funding calls

  • The CRCNA outlines the details of a specific research question or project and seeks suitably qualified candidates to deliver specific outcomes within an agreed budget.

General EOI submission guidelines

  • Our general EOI guidelines are available to read here.

Current funding calls for Expressions of interest

Open funding call

The emergence of a cotton industry in Northern Australia as an evolution of existing irrigated annual and dryland cropping (including hay production) provides opportunities for an integrated agricultural system which can significantly enhance cattle production and profitability. 

This ‘Cotton, Grains and Cattle’ (CGC) Program aims to maximise the productivity of cropping and beef production farming systems in developing crop production areas of northern Queensland, the Kununurra (Ord) region of Western Australia and in the Katherine and Douglas Daly regions of the Northern Territory. Synergistic investment in both development and research could result in substantial local and regional economic outcomes, with community, animal welfare and environmental benefits.

Proponents submitting an EOI are advised to refer to the CGC EOI Overview document for further information.
