The Victorian State Government has announced funding for technology hardware. The program is described as follows:
“The Technology Voucher Program has been developed by the Victorian Government to drive the use of cutting edge technologies and to support Victorian companies to compete locally and globally. […] It provides responsive and nimble funding for businesses wanting to explore the use of technology to create more competitive products and processes.”
“The Technology Voucher Program helps companies to adopt and develop new technologies by providing a voucher that can be exchanged for access to facilities, goods, services, advice or expertise provided by other companies or publicly funded organisations.”
“The program specifically targets the development, adoption and integration of information and communication technology, industrial biotechnology and small technologies (nano and micro scale technologies) by businesses.”
“The Technology Voucher Program replaces and expands on the highly successful Small Technologies Industry Uptake Program (STIUP).”
