Flinders Research NewsNow open - Expression of Interest for 2020 applications for ARC and NHMRC funding programs

Proactively Supporting our Research

The ARC and NHMRC Expressions of Interest (EoIs) process is now open, closing on 29 July 2019.

EoIs are an indication of your intention to apply for ARC and NMHRC funding programs, and enable you to access to additional benefits and opportunities that can assist and support you and your application(s), such as grant development, external review, mentorship and the incentive scheme.

A vital component of achieving the University’s strategic goal to increase its research intensity is to enhance our success with category 1 competitive funding schemes, primarily those of the ARC, the NHMRC and the MRFF. Key to this is providing effective support and incentives for grant applications.  To this end, grant application support and a range of co-investments supporting successful applications as incentives to apply, will again be offered this year.  

The Expression of Interest (EoI) process will give you the opportunity to benefit from the support and incentives scheme, in particular to secure an external professional review of your draft grant application.  Feedback from earlier this year shows that the external reviews are greatly valued.

If you wish to be considered for an external review you will need to return the EoI by the deadline of 29 July 2019

The time required for completion of the EoI form is not onerous.  

The EoI deadline will ensure optimal support for the development of applications and allow better targeting of researcher training and development workshops ('Grants Evolution') to be held in August and September. EoIs are also important sources of information for College Deans of Research in regard to potential College peer mentorship, review and support. 

The EoI can be accessed now.

For your information, a ‘near miss funding’ scheme will be available to support development of re-submissions of ARC Discovery Projects and NHMRC Ideas Grants that, while unsuccessful, were ranked highly.  Information on the co-investments schemes associated with successful grant applications and on support for other grant and fellowship applications will follow by separate email.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), Professor Robert Saint said, "I strongly encourage all researchers considering ARC or NHMRC grant applications to complete the Expression of Interest."

Flinders Research NewsFlinders University Impact Seed Funding for Early Career Researchers – applications now open

ECR Impact Seed Grants banner

Flinders University Impact Seed Funding for Early Career Researchers (ECRs) enables emerging researchers to develop their careers by undertaking key research projects or promotion of research outcomes. 

Applications for the 2019 round are now open, closing 29 July 2019. Funding of up to $10,000 will be awarded to each successful applicant.

This initiative is powered by Flinders partnering with our community of donors to provide ECRs (0-8 years post-PhD conferral) with the financial support to grow and fortify their skills. Our supporters want to make a difference by building our researchers’ capacity and capabilities to make a positive impact. 

This investment may represent your first independent research funding, enhancing your research track record and providing a springboard to larger projects and grant opportunities. Or it may provide the funds to showcase your research on the international stage or to form collaborative partnerships with industry and government stakeholders. It represents an opportunity for you to secure funding, manage your projects, and gain new experiences. Having access to funds at this early stage of your career will help to carve your own research pathway.

Project funds may be used for activities including:

  • achieving a key result or pilot study to underpin future funding applications; 
  • developing collaborations with industry or other partners;
  • travel support to present current research findings at an international conference in your research field;
  • accelerating progress in your existing research program(s) by facilitating additional resources (eg. short term research support staff or consumables).

Applicants are encouraged to formulate their own grant submission, outlining how the addition of Impact Seed Funding will leverage and stimulate their research activities, before consultation with their College Dean of Research.

The selection panel will consider the intrinsic research merits of, and potential for impact from, the project. In addition, the panel will be looking to understand how the applicant will use this opportunity to develop their capacity to be an independent, competitive researcher and how this investment will support their career pathway.

The application form and guidelines are available on the Flinders' Internal Schemes webpage

All queries and applications can be directed to Rupali Saikia, Research Grants Officer (Industry, Government, International and Internal), RDS. 

Applications must be lodged by 5 pm, Monday 29 July 2019.

 

Flinders University Impact Seed Funding for Early Career Researchers (ECRs) was established in 2018, and you can read more about the inaugural recipients on the Flinders News Blog.

Flinders Research NewsRelease of NHMRC’s Research Quality Strategy

NHMRC

Promoting the conduct of high quality research is a strategic priority for the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).

High quality Australian research has contributed to outstanding advances in science and medicine to the benefit of all Australians. This Research Quality Strategy (Strategy) aims to ensure the highest quality of NHMRC-funded research through the provision of guidance and support for good research practices throughout the research cycle.

The Strategy builds on current and previous NHMRC initiatives to foster research quality and aligns with Australia’s Chief Scientist’s call for action and international initiatives in this area. It applies to all types of research funded by NHMRC including basic science, clinical medicine and science, health services and public health research.

The Strategy was developed with advice from NHMRC’s Research Quality Steering Committee, which was established to provide advice on mechanisms for enhancing quality in NHMRC-funded research.

NHMRC recognises the importance of partnership with researchers and research institutions in Australia to ensure high quality research and will actively consult and engage with the sector throughout the implementation of this Strategy.

The Strategy and further information are available on NHMRC's website.

Questions or feedback about the Strategy can be sent to quality@nhmrc.gov.au.

Flinders Research NewsDeveloping an Evaluation Framework for the Medical Research Future Fund

MRFF

Research Australia members are invited to participate in a webinar briefing on the Draft Evaluation Framework for the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF). Flinders University is a member of Research Australia and interested staff are encouraged to attend the webinar.

The briefing will take place at midday AEST, Tuesday 4 June.

In this webinar Research Australia will provide:

  • background on why understanding return on investment through the MRFF matters;
  • a briefing on what Research Australia are recommending, and the feedback received to date; and
  • an opportunity to contribute to the conversation about how the MRFF Evaluation Framework can meet Government’s needs and provide researchers with a new lens through which to understand the economic, social and health benefits of their work.

Register at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_S-knkGyCROeRp5wFshJI4A.

The MRFF is a once in a generation opportunity to cement Australia’s position as a global leader in health innovation. The bipartisan support the MRFF has enjoyed to date is testament to the opportunity the MRFF offers and the value Australians place on value-based healthcare.

As a key architect of medical research policy in Australia, Research Australia has been working with the Department of Health to develop an Evaluation Framework for the MRFF which:

  • quantifies actual and expected gains, typically measured in quality adjusted life years (QALYs); savings cases; productivity dividends; economic contribution; and employment;
  • provides qualitative description of complementary effects, e.g. confidence amongst researchers which is relevant to staying in the sector; willingness of non-government funders such as venture capitalists, philanthropists and even private individuals to invest in this area;
  • identifies formal outcomes without strict numerical valuation, e.g. new registries; increase in capacity; regional access to services; and
  • promotes and measures translation of MRFF-funded research into health system improvements, social benefits and practice changes.

Tight fiscal constraint in both the public and private sectors means that continuing support for the MRFF relies on real, demonstrable health and economic impact. An Evaluation Framework for the MRFF safeguards the Fund, making the case for continued investment to Government and taxpayers.

To find out more about the Draft Evaluation Framework, please contact Research Australia on (02) 9295 8546 or admin@researchaustralia.org.
