$20 million to boost TCF industry innovation

A military uniform that can track the wearer's location and detect viral outbreak exposure is just one of ten creative ideas being supported by the Gillard Labor Government under the TCF Strategic Capability Program.

Announcing over $20 million for ten textile, clothing and footwear projects today Innovation Minister, Senator Kim Carr, said supporting and encouraging creativity in our industries is essential to help them grow and succeed.

"TCF industries contribute to our economy by employing over 45,000 Australians and generating a high number of exports,” Senator Carr said.

“The Government recognises its responsibility to ensure these industries have the strategic capability to grow stronger so their economic contribution is sustainable. We are doing this by fostering innovation.

“Under the TCF Strategic Capability Program we turn creative ideas into reality, boosting productivity and creating new jobs.

“The grants I am announcing today range from $400,000 to create new market opportunities for smaller manufacturers in the carpet industry, to $6.2 million to make better use of hi-tech production capabilities in the footwear sector.

“All ten projects have great potential and highlight just how strategic our Australian manufacturing companies and organizations are — they embrace innovative opportunities and seek global challenges.”
