    Email:          futuremakers@optus.com.au

Purpose
Future Makers is a capacity building and accelerator program that empowers innovators to
use technology to address social issues for vulnerable people.

Overview
We’re looking for entrepreneurs with more than just ideas, but with a working prototype
solution. Join other energetic innovators to enhance your business, social impact and tech
expertise, network and pitch for funding to help see your solution become a reality.

How it works
Shortlisted applicants will take part in a 4-month Future Makers Accelerator program that
aims to advance their technology solution and build their business, social impact and tech
expertise.

Future Makers includes eight days of workshops and a short series of webinars on topics
such as Your Vision, technology, knowing your customer, the art of storytelling, marketing
strategies, how to secure corporate and investor funding, managing stakeholders, project
planning, financial modelling and measuring your impact.

Participants will be coached by top talent at Optus and receive technology guidance and
insights from industry experts. There will be an opportunity for participants to polish their
business case and perfect their pitch before presenting to a panel of judges representing
different sectors.

Optus is offering up to $300,000 in funding over two stages: technology grants and pitch
grants. As part of the Singtel Group, there is an opportunity to progress to stage 3 of the
program.

    Stage 1 During the program finalists will have the opportunity to pitch for a small
     technology development grant to enhance or modify their existing prototype.
    Stage 2 Finalists will pitch for further funding to help bring them closer to launching their
     solution to the market.
    Stage 3 Finalists will have an opportunity to apply for the Singtel Group Future Makers
     Program where up to two finalists will be selected to participate to help scale their
     solution.

                                                                                                 4
Program criteria and focus areas
We’re seeking innovative technology solutions that help solve issues for disadvantaged
youth or adults within either of the following focus areas:

   Employability: Improve people’s ability to be job-ready or to get ahead with future
    career options. For example, removing barriers that prevent disadvantaged people from
    accessing training or employment opportunities.
   Education: Improve education outcomes or close education gaps for disadvantaged or
    vulnerable people. For example, supporting young people to stay engaged in school or
    removing barriers to them completing their education.
   Health: Address health concerns in Australia, such as cardiovascular diseases, cancers
    and diabetes; improve livelihoods and support people with a disability; address domestic
    and family violence; or, improve people’s mental wellbeing with access to vital services.
   Empowering women and girls: Address inequality that women and girls experience in
    their lives that can limit their choices and opportunities. For example, empowering
    women to build skills and solutions to start or join a business; or, seeing more girls in
    STEM-related education and/or jobs.

individuals who participate in voluntary litter and weed clean-up activities.

Overview
Voluntary litter and weed clean-up activities run by community groups provide a valuable
community service that benefits Western Australian communities and the natural
environment. Litter collections result in tidy, litter free public parks and community spaces,
and weed collections support the natural activity of the State's parks and wetlands.
However, waste collected during volunteer clean-ups, including recyclable and compostable
materials, is often sent to landfill.

Clean Communities provides collection bags to volunteer community groups to enable
separation of the waste they collect. Clean Communities collection bags are consistent with
Australian Standard bin colours:

 recycling (yellow)
 green waste (green)

                                                                                              12
   waste (red).

Community groups and individuals that collect waste for recycling and composting through
the program can receive up to $500 based on the number of bags that they fill.

In 2017–18, approved Clean Communities participants will be eligible to receive a
maximum grant of $500 for Clean Communities collection activities as follows:

 $5 per full bag of recyclables collected (yellow bag)
 $5 per full bag of green waste collected (green bag)
 $3 per full bag of general waste collected (red bag).

Grants payments will be available for collections undertaken and reported between 20
December and 1 June 2018.

Applications will remain open until 1 June 2018, or until all funding has been allocated,
whichever occurs first.

Purpose
The Contemporary Music Touring Program (CMTP) supports national touring activity
undertaken by Australian musicians performing original contemporary music. It provides
travel support of up to $15,000 for artists and their manager for tours in Australia that
include performances in regional and remote areas.

wide range of different musical styles.

Applications must contain one tour only. The tour must comprise of performances in at
least three venues outside of the performer’s hometown and must include at least one
performance in a non-metropolitan area.

Where over 75% of your itinerary is to remote and/or very remote locations, you are entitled
to request additional funding of up to $15,000, to a maximum total grant request of $30,000.
The Accessibility/Remoteness Index of Australia (ARIA) helps determine the regional and
remote reach of the tour.

Joint tours, where two or more independent performers are undertaking the same tour
itinerary, are eligible under this program. These should be submitted as a single application.

                                                                                             22
In such cases, the funding cap of $15,000 still applies (unless the tour is eligible for
additional remote or very remote funding).

We encourage the inclusion of additional activities which extend opportunities for
community participation, such as workshops, master classes and all-age performances.

Purpose
This funding scheme provides funding and support to create new opportunities for
researchers and policy makers to work together to define research questions, undertake
research, interpret the findings and implement the findings into policy and practice.

Overview
The scheme aims to support the work of healthcare policy and service delivery
implementation agencies by supporting the translation of research outcomes into policy and
practice and the evaluation of current policy and practice to identify gaps in knowledge. This
type of research is normally conducted outside of universities and medical research
institutes. It is for this reason that universities and medical research institutes are generally
not eligible to partner with researchers through the scheme. Universities and medical
research institutes can continue to participate as an Administering or Participating
institution.

Partnership Projects will address the delivery, organisation, funding and access to services
and programs that affect the health of Australians. Research may involve preventative
programs, primary and community health care, hospitals, community services, the health
workforce and infrastructure.

Funding:
Partnership Projects are for five years or less and the maximum amount of NHMRC funding
that may be requested for a single application is $1.5 million.

Objectives:
The objectives of the scheme are to:

   meet the need for a more effective integration of research evidence into health policy and
    service delivery
   create partnerships among policy makers, managers, service providers and researchers
   provide support to answer often complex and difficult questions that policy makers,
    managers and service providers face when making decisions and implementing policies
    that affect Australians’ health and health care
   be highly responsive to the priorities of government, the community and health
    professionals
   enable applicants to apply for funding at any time during the year to allow researchers
    and partner organisations to develop timely collaborations.

                                                                                               25
