Overview

NHMRC/NAFOSTED Joint Call for Collaborative Research Projects

The NHMRC/NAFOSTED Joint Call for Collaborative Research Projects has been developed jointly by the National Foundation for Science and Technology Development of Vietnam (NAFOSTED) and NHMRC.

This joint call is for research into one or more of the following research themes:

  • Infectious Diseases
  • Maternal/Child Health
  • Public Health

The specific objectives of the joint call are to:

  • generate new knowledge in infectious diseases, maternal/child health and/or public health that can be translated into health policy and practice to benefit human health
  • foster co-investment with international partners in research programs of joint interest that will involve researchers based in Vietnam and Australia
  • foster the exchange of scientific skills and technological capabilities between Vietnam and Australia, and
  • build further collaborations between Vietnamese and Australian researchers.

The Australian lead/principal investigator (Chief Investigator A) is to complete all application requirements in NHMRC’s Research Grants Management System (RGMS). The Vietnamese lead/principal investigator (Chief Investigator B) is to complete all application requirements in NAFOSTED’s Online Management System (OMS).

Targeted Call for Research into Social and Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples from early life to young adults

Mental health has been identified as one of Australia’s national health priority areas, ranking third overall in Australian burden of disease estimates. Like physical health, a significant gap exists between the social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) and mental health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples.

This TCR aims to support research that addresses the following research question: Identify novel and culturally-informed approaches to maintain or improve the social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) and mental health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander infants, children, adolescents and young adults. Specifically, the scope of this TCR is research into:
* prevention and early intervention strategies and initiatives, including strengthening parental responsiveness
* a responsive and culturally appropriate service system (both mainstream and community controlled)
* addressing consequences of poor SEWB and mental illness, such as incarceration and problem gambling, that reinforce poor mental and physical health.

This TCR does not support research projects that have any laboratory-based research, including animalbased research or research based in animal models. As previous NHMRC TCRs have focused on Indigenous youth suicide prevention, and dementia for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, research projects exclusively focused on these topics will not be supported under this call. Research projects that include aspects of these topics but do not focus on them exclusively are acceptable.
