Tender: Shark Management Strategy Grants Program Now Open, New South Wales, closes 26/06/2016 Not Stated ...

DEPARTMENT OF PRIMARY INDUSTRIES. NSW SHARK MANAGEMENT STRATEGY GRANTS PROGRAM NOW OPEN. The NSW Government is now seeking applications for grant funding under the scientifically-driven $16m Shark Management Strategy (SMS).
A total of $200,000 is available to support projects which align with the key objective of the NSW SMS to 'increase protection for bathers from shark interactions while minimising harm to sharks or other animals'.
The Shark Management Strategy Grants Program invites technology developers, researchers, organisations, educational institutions, businesses and individuals to apply for funding to develop a range of technologies.
Key areas for funding which align with the NSW SMS objective are:
1. Personal shark deterrents (e.g. protective wetsuits, small electrical and magnetic devices). (This is the PRIORITY FUNDING AREA for 2016-17).
2. Area-based shark deterrents (e.g. electrical or other types of barriers).
3. Shark detection methods (e.g. sonar technologies, shark recognition software).
4. Shark biology relevant to interactions with humans (e.g. sensory systems).
5. Socio-economics of shark-human interactions (e.g. changes in human behaviour and perceptions following implementation of particular approaches).
Grants are open to national and international applicants and joint applications are encouraged. Proposed projects should be developed as 1-year in duration
To apply for a grant, applicants will first need to complete an Expression of Interest (EOI) form. Selected applicants will then be invited to complete a full application.

The Shark Management Strategy Grants Program closes on Sunday 26 June 2016.
