Overview

Targeted Call for Research into depression, anxiety and suicide among elderly Australians

This Targeted Call for Research (TCR) will be co-funded with beyondblue. The call focuses on exploring ways to prevent depression, anxiety and suicide among elderly Australians and on improving the detection and effective management of these conditions, through new and existing interventions and models of care.

This TCR aims to support research that addresses the following question:  How can the rates and impacts of depression, anxiety and suicide among elderly Australians living in the community and/or in residential aged care services be reduced? Researchers may address this question with regard to prevention or detection and management, and may focus on depression, and/or anxiety and/or suicide. The research must include human participants aged 65 years and older. Particular emphasis should be given to those aged 75 years and older, including men aged 85+, who have disproportionately high rates of suicide. Proposals should also consider how the research can leverage or be linked to beyondblue resources, platforms, programs and services.

Targeted Call for Research into Dementia in Indigenous Australians

NHMRC is undertaking this TCR which focuses on the health and care needs of Indigenous Australians and their communities living with dementia. The aim of implementing this call is to provide funding for culturally appropriate research that specifically addresses dementia in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians and the impact on their families and carers.

NHMRC-European Union Collaborative Research Grants commencing in 2018

The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC)-European Union (EU) Collaborative Research Grants scheme aims to provide assistance to Australian researchers to participate in multinational research collaborative projects with international researchers that have been selected for funding under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020.

Projects involving Australian researchers based in Australia that are chosen by the European Commission (EC) for funding, may be eligible for NHMRC support of up to $500,000.

Applications will only be eligible for NHMRC Support if they have been submitted to the European Commission and has been successful through the EU process under the following  Horizon 2020 calls:

Boosting Dementia Research Grants - Priority Round 2: JPND Call for Multinational Research Projects for Pathway Analysis across Neurodegenerative Diseases

NHMRC’s Boosting Dementia Research Grants Scheme Priority Round 2 (PR2) aims to provide assistance to Australian researchers to participate in multinational collaborative research projects that have been selected for funding under the European Union Joint Programme – Neurodegenerative Disease (JPND): Call for Multinational Research Projects for Pathway Analysis across Neurodegenerative Diseases.

JPND is aimed at tackling the challenge of neurodegenerative diseases and coordinating investment into research to find causes, develop cures, and identify appropriate ways to care for those with neurodegenerative diseases. More information about this Call is available from the JPND website.

Under PR2, NHMRC will provide up to $850,000 of funding over a maximum period of three years for Australian-based researchers participating in multinational consortia that have been favourably reviewed by JPND.

Only research with a key focus on “Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias” will be funded through PR2. Applying for funding with any other focus under this call will not be supported through this scheme.

To be eligible for PR2 funding, Australian researchers must apply to the JPND as part of a collaborative application.
