Overview

DFAT Stronger Systems for Health Security call for research under the Indo-Pacific Centre for Health Security

The Australian Government, through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), is implementing a call for health systems and / or policy research in relation to health security, entitled Stronger Systems for Health Security. This call for research seeks health systems and / or policy research that:
a) Contributes evidence to strengthen regional health security; and
b) Develops regional and local capacity to undertake and use health systems and / or policy research to improve health security.

This new investment in research is part of the Australian Government’s Health Security Initiative led by the Indo-Pacific Centre for Health Security. Within the Initiative, health security is defined as reduced vulnerability to acute public health events, mainly existing and emerging infectious diseases with epidemic potential, and drug resistant strains of these diseases.

The objectives of the research call are:
- To support high quality and collaborative health systems and / or policy research that contributes evidence to strengthen regional health security, in particular in Southeast Asia and the Pacific;
- To promote translation of that research into health policy and / or practice in the region;
- To increase the capacity and expertise of research institutions in the region in health systems and / or policy research related to health security; and
- To contribute to the growth of Australian researchers’ experience of, and expertise in, health security issues in the region, for the benefit of Australia and the region.

NHMRC is providing the application and assessment process to facilitate this call.

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:

Societal Challenges – Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing

  1. SC1-PM-02-2017: New concepts in patient stratification
  2. SC1-PM-07-2017: Promoting mental health and well-being in the young
  3. SC1-PM-10-2017: Comparing the effectiveness of existing healthcare interventions in the adult population
  4. SC1-PM-15-2017: Personalised coaching for well-being and care of people as they age
  5. SC1-PM-16-2017: In-silico trials for developing and assessing biomedical products
  6. SC1-PM-17-2017: Personalised computer modelisation and in-silico systems for well-being

Industrial Leadership – Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing and Processing, and Biotechnology calls:

  1. NMBP-13-2017: Cross-cutting KETs for diagnostics at the point-of-care
  2. NMBP-14-2017: Regulatory Science Framework for assessment of risk benefit ratio of Nanomedicines and Biomaterials
  3. NMBP-15-2017: Nanotechnologies for imaging cellular transplants and regenerative process in vivo

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 areas2 , 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.

For more information, visit NHMRC scheme webpage.
