Technology Assessment Scheme



The Dairy Australia Technology Assessment (DATA) Scheme can provide Australian dairy processors with financial assistance to assess the commercial viability of new technologies or practices. Priority is given to projects which can significantly improve the Australian dairy industry’s economic or environmental performance.

Co-funded by Dairy Australia and Food Innovation Australia Limited (FIAL), the DATA Scheme is designed to enhance the rate and rigour by which the Australian dairy processing sector evaluates and screens emerging technologies of interest. The result should be fewer risks to subsequent investment decisions and accelerated technology uptake.
