Atamo Awarded Government Grant

We are pleased to announce that Atamo has been successful in being awarded a significant grant under the National Innovation and Science Agenda (NISA).

 The Business Research and Innovation Initiative is a program under NISA aimed at small and medium enterprises.  The program invited Commonwealth Government Agencies to propose challenges to industry.  

Atamo was initially selected as one of a number of companies to undertake a feasibility study for "On the spot technology for measuring pyrethroid surface residue".  The feasibility study was successfully completed in June this year and was judged eligible to apply for a grant to complete a proof of concept of the proposed technology.

We have now been awarded a grant to undertake a proof of concept development.

The announcement by Senator the Hon Arthur Sinodinos, Minster for Industry, Innovation and Science can be found here.

Details of the award can be found here

Our collaborator in the feasibility study was Dr Peter Forster of Chemsearch Consulting and we are supported by Professor Allan McKinley of the University of Western Australia.
