NHMRC Partnership Projects Grants for funding commencing 2014 - 2015

Funding Body

National Health Medical Research Council

Scheme/ Round

NHMRC Partnerships for Better Health - Partnership Projects


NHMRC Partnerships for Better Health (Partnership Projects) will help create partnerships among decision makers, policy makers, managers, clinicians and researchers. This funding scheme provides funding and support to create new opportunities for researchers and policy makers to work together to define research questions and undertake research and also to interpret and implement the findings.

Partnership Projects will answer a specific research question to influence health and well-being through changes in the delivery, organisation, funding and access to health services. 

Continuous application process

NHMRC has changed the arrangements for this scheme to allow applicants to apply at any time during the year rather than through just one annual round. This process also allows researchers and partner organisations to develop timely collaborations. The grant commencement date will not be fixed for 1 January - it will be aligned with the timing of each round. Therefore, funding will be provided more quickly after grants are awarded/announced and when all necessary documentation is in place.

Partnership Projects will reopen in January 2015 as a continuous call.

Applications submitted between the following dates will be reviewed together:

  • January to April 2015
  • April to June 2015
  • June to December 2015

Applications can be submitted at any time during this period, and we will advertise internal deadlines on this webpage.
