National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Grants
The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) is the main statutory authority of the Australian Government responsible for medical research. As an independent arm of the Department of Health, the NHMRC funds high quality health and medical research, builds research capability in Australia, supports the translation of health and medical research into better health outcomes, and promote ethics and integrity in research.
Throughout the year, the NHMRC invests in health and medical research via various grant funding programs such as their ‘Synergy’ and ‘Ideas’ grants, which are available to a range of administering institutions such as Universities, Research Institutes, Not-for-Profits and Healthcare Services.
Join us at Grants Office Australia in November as we take a closer look at the NHMRC’s grant funding programs. We’ll look at the timing of each grant opportunity, eligibility requirements, funding amounts and the types of projects that get funded. We will also cover the recent Federal Budget allocation for NHMRC funding and discuss what this means for grant-seekers in Medicine and Healthcare research.
