Challenge Information

Round 2 challenges

On 26 July 2017, four challenges were released to market. Applications closed at 2pm (AEST) on Tuesday, 26 September 2017.

An amendment has been made to the eligibility criteria for the Advance Queensland Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, removing the requirement for an Australian Business Number (ABN).

Applicants should be aware that, if successful, they may be required to undertake work in Queensland, and will need either an ABN, or if located outside of Australia, an Australian Registered Body Number (ARBN).

To reflect the above change, minor amendments have been made to:


Past challenges

Applications to the below challenges have now closed, and solutions are in development.

SBIR Round 1

Reef Water Quality Monitoring – Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP)

This challenge is seeking to develop and supply affordable, fine scale water quality monitoring sensors to deploy in the catchments of the Great Barrier Reef. Solving this challenge will support wider deployment of water quality sensors to inform improvements in farming practices. This will lead to long‑term improvements in water quality, and a healthier, more resilient Reef.

EHP are now working with two providers to develop their innovative sensors:

Capillary Zone Electrophoresis (CZE) technology for detecting dissolved inorganic nitrogen.

Capillary Zone Electrophoresis (CZE) technology for detecting dissolved inorganic nitrogen

Trialling a prototype CZE sensor to detect dissolved inorganic nitrogen. The result is expected to be a highly accurate, low-cost, field-deployable sensor providing comprehensive water quality data via the Internet of Things.

Select Field Effect Transistors (ISFETs) for detecting dissolved inorganic nitrogen.

Select Field Effect Transistors (ISFETs) for detecting dissolved inorganic nitrogen

Trialling ISFETs as nitrogen sensors. The final product is expected to be able to be produced at scale and allow considerable improvements in robustness, cost and detection limits over current technologies.

Sport Venue Lighting – Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing (NPSR)

This challenge is seeking to develop flexible, sustainable and cost efficient next generation lighting solutions for community field-based sports venues. Solving this challenge is likely to support grassroots community sporting organisations and allow them to safely operate later into the evening. This will allow more Queenslanders to participate in sport at times that suit them, and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

NPSR has identified two providers, and is working with them to develop potential solutions.

No Capital Cost – LED Sports Lighting

No Capital Cost – LED Sports Lighting

Develop a detailed engineering design and further develop energy modelling for a sustainable lighting solutions for community sporting organisations, where LED lighting and solar panel systems are installed with no upfront costs.

Bright Sports Shared Facilities Program

Bright Sports Shared Facilities Program

Bright Sport will further develop eSwitch, a Queensland innovation which provides sport clubs with a remote switching system for their field lights and detailed reporting to promote sustainable and accountable energy use. It will also enable emerging sport organisations to search and pay for available floodlit green space with their smartphones.

Asset Lifecycle Management – Department of Housing and Public Works (HPW)

This challenge is seeking to improve the Queensland Government’s understanding of multi-agency asset data, and drive improved whole of government decision making for asset management. Solving this challenge is likely to deliver real procurement savings across Government, and provide consistency of work through multi-year maintenance programs, creating job and training opportunities in regional and metropolitan areas.

HPW are now working with two providers to develop potential solutions to this challenge.

Project Luminosity

Project Luminosity

Develop Project Luminosity, an innovative technology system for whole of government asset data. Luminosity’s predictive modelling enables asset business intelligence and greater transparency to help asset owners make more informed decisions.
