The Smart Australia: Take Local Global program, which was launched in Queensland last month, will close for applications soon. If you would like to engage in international trade and have a commercial product or service ready for export, then you should apply for Smart Australia soon.

The Smart Australia program targets natural resource companies working in or looking to diversify into the oil and gas sector by helping to identify and accelerate international opportunities.

Companies are invited to apply for a $5000 grant to take part in the program, which includes workshops in Brisbane or Perth. Participants will then arrange travel to Gastech 2018, being held in Barcelona, Spain, from 17 to 20 September.

NERA representatives will be on hand in Brisbane, Darwin, Perth, Chinchilla, Toowoomba, Gladstone and Henderson to answer questions and assist in the application process. Register for your free attendance here.

If you have five minutes or 50 minutes, then drop into one of NERA’s information sessions being held across the country to discuss your application and how you can take part in this initiative.

  • Perth: 16 April, 9 am to 11 am
