Industry Partnership Agreement
TSGA also facilitates a process to guide expenditure of Research and Development (R&D) levy funds independently collected from industry by State Government agencies and leveraged via the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC). Accordingly, the FRDC is a key TSGA partner with strategically aligned R&D priorities and objectives.
The TSGA Industry Partnership Agreement is two-tiered, which recognises the level of R&D funding the industry is generating due to its GVP and ongoing contribution to the FRDC. This two-tiered arrangement gives a portion of funding to collaborative research which has outputs that deliver needs across the industry. The second portion is divided to allow the companies to conduct their own RD&E which is relevant to them.
