The Physical Sciences Fund (PSF) is a competitive development and commercialisation program for technological innovations in NSW.

NSW has great strengths in research across a wide range of scientific fields. The PSF aims to build on these strengths by supporting the translation of research into devices and systems ready for commercialisation.

The PSF is a $5 million fund that aims to deliver significant social, economic and environmental benefits to NSW by providing financial support for the development of new and innovative devices and systems within NSW, across the branches of physical science and engineering, including physics, chemistry, astronomy and the earth sciences.

The PSF will provide funding support through a competitive process to individuals, companies, research institutes and universities to take local innovations to market.
