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.

UKRI-NHMRC Built Environment and Prevention Research Scheme

NHMRC is partnering with UK Research and Innovation’s (UKRI) Medical Research Council (MRC) and Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) to support research proposals that aim to generate evidence that can be translated into actionable, sustainable and cost-effective ways of preventing NCDs, to improve population health and reduce health inequalities in the UK and Australia.

Funding is for up to three years and NHMRC has committed up to $4 million to support the Australian component of projects commencing in 2020. The areas listed below are given as examples of aspects of the built environment in which multi-disciplinary research proposals are welcomed:

  • urban planning and regeneration
  • city design, including increasing conditions that promote health such as ‘active travel’ and access to green space
  • housing
  • transportation systems
  • air quality, both indoor and outdoor, and noise
  • the indoor environment
  • neighbourhood diversity, including social regeneration and social cohesion, and access to health services
  • the relationship between the built environment, extreme weather events, and their impact on health.

Proposals need not be restricted to the examples cited as applications across the breadth of the built environment are encouraged.

Application process:

  • UK Principal Investigator (PI) submits to the MRC the Intention to Submit on behalf of the research collaboration.
  • Full application to be submitted by UK PI on MRC’s Joint electronic submission (Je-S) system on behalf of the UK and Australian research collaboration. This copy of the proposal will be used for the joint UK and Australian peer review process.
  • Australian CIA must complete the application form on NHMRC's RGMS and upload a pdf copy of the full Je-S application submitted to the MRC.

For more information on the call, refer to the MRC website and NHMRC website.

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.
