Research Support Grants - Development Grants 2015


A Development Grant provides funding support to individual researchers, research teams, or a HMR company in partnership with a researcher/s to undertake research at the early proof-of-principle or pre-seed stage.

The Scheme supports the commercial development of a product, process, procedure or service that if applied, would result in improved health care, disease prevention or provide health cost savings.

Applications must demonstrate a basic understanding of the process and steps required to move from research to outcomes that can be commercialised, including:

  • the process and steps to a market, the nature of the market;
  • the milestones and risks of the venture; and
  • an understanding of possible means of handling intellectual property connected with the project.
