In recognition of the challenges businesses throughout regional and remote Australia face, the nbn has partnered with the Regional Australia Institute to offer the Innovate with nbn Grants Program.
This program aims to recognise and showcase individuals, businesses or organisations that are:
- Innovators, disrupters or entrepreneurs inspiring others in their community
- Champions of digital adoption
- Continuing to facilitate the digital capabilities and benefits of nbn
- Advocates of supporting regional businesses
The program will award grants of $10,000 to organisations or business projects in the categories of health, agriculture, education, tourism and arts. There is also a $25,000 grant to be awarded to the most outstanding application across all categories.
“We’re looking for individuals, businesses or organisations who are championing digital health in their community. This could include how they’re delivering healthcare digitally, or helping to improve people’s confidence in using innovative health solutions, like wearables, telehealth, electronic health records and e-prescriptions.”
