Are you a Queensland-based business wanting to attract new national and international clients to use your services to develop their biomedical product?

Applications are now open for round 2 of the Queensland Biomedical Voucher Program.

We're offering Queensland-based biomedical businesses up to 50% of the fees they would charge to a national or international client to develop its biomedical product in Queensland, up to a cap of $250,000 (excluding GST). The national or international client must meet the other 50% of the costs.

What kinds of biomedical services are eligible for funding?

  • Design development and validation services.
  • Prototype building and testing.
  • Contract development and/or manufacturing services.
  • Contract research, specialist advice or professional services.
  • Commercialisation advice and services.
  • The cost of small items of plant and equipment needed to provide the biomedical services.

Am I eligible?

To be eligible to apply, you must be a Queensland-based business providing biomedical services to support the development of biomedical products.

Additionally, your:

  • services must form a discrete project and not be a continuation of existing work between the service provider and client
  • services must be delivered at a physical location in Queensland
  • biomedical product being developed must be clearly defined.
