The Singapore-Australia Bilateral Programme on ‘Innovations in Food for Sustainability’, initiated by the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia, aims to foster research collaboration between the two countries in the field of ‘Innovations in Food for Sustainability.’ It seeks to develop opportunities and individual research projects in four thematic areas identified as priority areas:

  1. Production of new or novel ingredients: Fractionation and/or Precision Fermentation
  2. Nutrition and Health
  3. Consumer acceptance of Complementary Protein/Novel Foods
  4. Food Side Stream/Waste Valorisation

The programme aims to support research teams to:

  • Develop new or novel ingredients to enable sustainable food production through fractionation and/or precision fermentation, expediting market delivery.
  • Enhance understanding of the nutritional profiles of novel foods and implement strategies to develop nutritionally balanced products, facilitating consumer acceptance.
  • Add value to by-products through food side stream/waste valorisation, creating value-added opportunities for the industry.
  • Engage with industry, government, community, and other R&D organizations to achieve greater impact.

Eligibility: To be eligible for grant funding, applicants must propose a joint research project that includes:

  • A CSIRO Principal Investigator
  • A Singapore-based Principal Investigator holding a primary appointment of at least 75% in a locally publicly funded institution and salaried by the institution

Additionally, the proposed project must focus on at least one of the programme’s priority areas and address at least one of the programme’s aims as stated above.

Collaboration with industry partners is optional but strongly encouraged. Australia-based industry collaborators are not eligible to receive funding directly or indirectly. Singapore-based collaborators are not eligible to receive funding directly or indirectly unless specifically provided for in the grant and approved by the Grantor.

For Singapore-based applicants, eligible public sector research performers include Institutes of Higher Learning (including universities and polytechnics), A*STAR Research Institutes, and non-defence related public sector agencies (e.g., Ministries, Statutory Boards).

Each successful project may receive up to 500,000 SGD (inclusive of 30% indirect costs) for Singapore-based applicants and 500,000 AUD for Australia-based applicants.

Applications must be submitted by May 31, 2024.
