APRIL Application and Reporting Templates

The Innovation and Commercialisation projects are an important pillar of APRIL’s strategic direction and complement our longer-term research initiatives.

Applications can be lodged by researchers currently working in the pork industry, but are also welcomed from individuals and organisations not necessarily with a direct affiliation with the Australasian pork industry.

An indicative process and timeframe for innovation proposals is as follows:

  • Proposal submission – close May 17, 2019.
  • Proposal Critique and Review (R&D Advisory Committee Subcommittee).
  • R&D Advisory Committee Review – June 7, 2019.
  • APRIL Board – June 24, 2019.
  • Projects commence by September 2, 2019.

Assessment of applications will be based strongly on the criteria outlined in the project proposal templates and will be favourably considered if they can demonstrate revenue generating potential.
