India Australia RISE Accelerator

CSIRO, Australia's national science organisation, has announced the launch of the India Australia Rapid Innovation and Startup Exchange (RISE) Accelerator program.

The RISE Accelerator provides support to science-based technology startups who are considering overseas expansion between India and Australia. 

The program will be tailored to support startups working on a range of priority areas between India and Australia, such as climate-smart agriculture, clean energy, and climate-smart mobility.

CSIRO is delivering the initiative in partnership with Atal Innovation Mission Official, the Government of India’s initiative promoting a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in the country.

The call for applications will be made towards the end of 2023.
