Manufacturing incentive grants and concessional loans for equipment will be sought to manage technical risk.
Innovation grants will be sought for the introduction of key personnel to build on the Australian business for expansion into export markets using the regulatory data pack.
Licence fees for exclusivity will be matched by investment from equity capital raising to secure markets and secure supply of product to the distributors.
