GeneratER - General Q&A

Sure. Collaborative solutions are welcome and there is a dedicated box in the EOI form that caters for this.
Yes, but the WA-based company must be the lead applicant.
If you meet the other criteria, we suggest you submit an EOI. Open innovation challenges are as much about potential solutions as they are about existing commercial technologies. There is nothing to lose and potentially much to be gained by letting the Challenge Owners know about what you are working on.
As outlined in the EOI Guidelines, NERA does not claim ownership of any of the IP created by pilot participants or Challenge Owners during the pilot. IP ownership will be a matter for negotiation on a case-by-case basis between the parties to the agreement governing the pilot. There is no expectation that any IP rights will be relinquished during the EOI/pilot process. If you would like to learn more about IP in Australia we encourage you to explore resources such as those provided by IP Australia.
