The Collaborative Solutions Program was developed by the NSW Government and is managed by NSW Trade & Investment.
The Program supports the development of innovative technology-enabled solutions that address an identified barrier to growth in a key sector. It focuses on opportunities, challenges and changing business models brought about by enabling technologies such as mobile, cloud, analytics, sensors, advanced materials and biosciences. Successful submissions receive incentive grants for the development and piloting of these new solutions.
A key outcome of the Program is the collaboration of businesses that form consortia to address opportunities and challenges brought about by emerging technologies. This leads to the development and trial of new solutions to test technologies in the field, validate consumer assumptions and accelerate the shift to new business models.
The Program adopts a contemporary approach to industry development by catalysing collaboration.
