The Australian Government has partnered with industry to enable the development and deployment of emerging aviation technologies, with more than $18 million awarded to 12 projects under the first round of the Emerging Aviation Technology Partnerships (EATP) Program.

The EATP Program provides an overall commitment of $32.6 million to June 2024 to make Australian aviation more competitive, efficient and sustainable. The remaining funding will be allocated as part of Round 2.

The program will support strategic partnerships with industry using emerging aviation technology to address community needs, particularly in regional Australia.

The grants awarded under Round One of the EATP Program will support a range of projects which include development of digital farming, boosting regional supply chains, connecting regional communities and growing manufacturing in emerging aviation technology.

Round 2 of the EATP Program is expected to commence in the coming months. If you have any questions, please contact us at
