Flinders Research NewsThe new NHMRC grant program

NHMRC

The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) has implemented a substantial restructure of its grant program for applications late 2018-early 2019, for funding commencing in 2020.

The changes were summarised in a presentation at Flinders University on the 24 July 2018 given by Dr Tony Willis, Executive Director, Research Strategy and Implementation Taskforce. The video recording of the presentation is available on the past presentations and workshop page, under the NHMRC section.

The new program will comprise four funding streams for which the NHMRC has now published the guidelines. They are:

  1. Investigator Grants, which will provide the highest-performing researchers at all career stages with funding for their salary (if required) and a significant research support package
  2. Synergy Grants, which will provide $5 million per grant for outstanding multidisciplinary research teams to work together to answer complex questions
  3. Ideas Grants, which will support innovative and creative research projects, and be available to researchers with bright ideas at all career stages
  4. Clinical Trials and Cohort Studies opportunity is to support high-quality clinical trials and cohort studies that address important gaps in knowledge, leading to relevant and implementable findings for the benefit of human health.

For more information, including information on timelines, guidelines and transition to the new schemes, please see the Research Development and Support website.
