Go-Green Co-Innovation Program (GGCIP)

Go-Green Co-Innovation Program (GGCIP)

  • Applications are open until: 4 December 2023
  • Grants: from $150,000 to $500,000

The Go-Green Co-Innovation Program's (GGCIP) primary goal is to encourage cooperation between Australian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and Singaporean businesses in joint projects that support the decarbonisation of economic activities or contribute to Australia's and Singapore's shared aim of achieving net-zero emissions. By motivating Australian SMEs to initiate or expand their business ventures with Singaporean partners, GGCIP aims to enhance trade and commerce in environmental goods and services within the green sectors, thereby strengthening ties between the two nations.

This initiative will be jointly administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and Enterprise Singapore (EnterpriseSG). DFAT will oversee the allocation of GGCIP grants provided by the Australian Government to eligible Australian SMEs, while EnterpriseSG will manage grants from the Singaporean government to support qualified Singaporean companies collaborating with Australian SMEs under this program.

Key Requirements

As a pivotal component of the Singapore Australia Green Economy Agreement, GGCIP seeks to incentivise and facilitate collaborative innovation among SMEs from both countries. The program will play a crucial role in establishing or expanding business operations and commercial activities that promote bilateral trade in green goods and services.

Grants are available for financing initiatives aimed at advancing the decarbonisation of economic activities and facilitating the transition of Singapore and Australia toward achieving net zero emissions. These initiatives encompass the development and commercialisation of products, services, or solutions.
