The NHMRC would like all applicants to export application previews from Sapphire before their Synergy Grant application is no longer accessible. This will assist in future application rounds and, if applicable, assist with applying in other NHMRC schemes currently available. Applicants will have until COB 6 April 2020 to complete these exports. If applicants require any assistance with this process please email the Research Help Centre via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
