Overview

MRFF - International Clinical Trial Collaborations (ICTC) Grant Opportunity

This competitive grant opportunity will provide support for Australian research teams to conduct clinical trial research in collaboration with international counterparts. Applications to this grant opportunity must propose a single clinical trial that will achieve the following outcomes: promote Australian involvement in international collaborative investigator-initiated clinical trials research through the establishment and co ordination of clinical trial site/s in Australia; and provide high-quality evidence of the effectiveness of novel health treatments, drugs or devices in ‘usual care’ settings, which will support a decision on whether to deliver the intervention in an Australian setting. Novel health treatments include new and innovative applications of existing interventions.

For further information, visit NHMRC-MRFF scheme webpage and Department of Health MRFF scheme webpage. Applicants will need to log into GrantConnect to download scheme guidelines.

Boosting Dementia Research Grants Scheme: Priority Round 5 & 6

Boosting Dementia Research Grants Scheme: Priority Round 5 - Implementing Dementia Risk Reduction and Prevention Research

    • This call will address the challenges in providing dementia risk reduction and prevention treatments and programs by supporting research that will deliver to the Australian community high quality, evidenced-based information on key risk factors of dementia for effective interventions that will decrease the prevalence or delay the onset of dementia. Knowledge translation is central to the initiative, given that research translation remains one of the biggest challenges to dementia risk reduction and prevention.

    Boosting Dementia Research Grants Scheme: Priority Round 6 - Improving Dementia Data and Methods

      • The supported research will i) provide new capacity for reliable estimates of dementia incidence and prevalence, by different types of dementia; ii) support research toward the development of new prevention, treatment and care measures by Australian researchers, including with international collaborators, and iii) contribute to planning services, monitoring trends, and identifying new markets and areas of need by governments, industry and providers.

MRFF - Keeping Australians Out of Hospital Grant Opportunity

This opportunity will support research into evidence-based, implementable and scalable preventive health measures that aim to prevent the development, or promote better management of complex and chronic health conditions, improve quality of life for people with these conditions and keep them out of hospital.

For further information, visit NHMRC-MRFF scheme webpage and Department of Health scheme webpage. Applicants will need to log in to GrantConnect to download scheme guidelines.

Targeted Call for Research into Frailty in Hospital Care: Complex Health Needs

The aims of implementing the call are to support research that addresses the following question:

  • How can frail persons be supported to safely avoid hospitalisations, receive optimal care when admitted and achieve the best health recovery outcomes through integrated and coordinated in- and post-hospital interventions?

For further information, visit NHMRC scheme webpage .

Targeted Call for Research - Nutrition for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s health is a major health issue outlined in the NHMRC Corporate Plan 2017-2018. This TCR is the third to be funded post a public call for research priorities in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health conducted in 2016.

Research proposals received in the public call were assessed and prioritised by an NHMRC working committee consisting of Principal Committee Indigenous Caucus (PCIC) members and/or senior NHMRC research scientists (in consultation with the CEO).

PCIC and Research Committee approved a budget of up to $5 million in research funding focusing on Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander nutrition.

For further information, visit NHMRC scheme webpage.

NHMRC-European Union Collaborative Research Grants

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.

For further information, visit NHMRC-EU Collaborative Research Grants webpage. Applicants will need to log into GrantConnect to download scheme guidelines.
