Many of NHMRC’s funding schemes address multiple Priority Actions under our 2013-15 Strategic Plan. Our schemes have been categorised below according to their logical and/or primary strategic intention (Create, Translate, Build, Partner) rather than by research topic or discipline. A directory of previous NHMRC grants can be found here.
Grants to Create New Knowledge
These grants focus on providing funding to support the research undertaken to promote the health of all Australians through the creation of knowledge.
Grants to Accelerate Research Translation
NHMRC’s translational schemes fund high quality researchers to conduct the research needed to support the production of scholarly evidence to inform policy and/or practice and the intellectual work to better deal with complex translation pathways.
Grants to Build Australia’s Future Capability
To build Australia’s future capability for research and translation, NHMRC funds the best and brightest researchers and research teams and provides infrastructure support grants to support the infrastructure required to complete health and medical research in Australia.
Work With Partners
NHMRC Partnerships for Better Health aims to improve the availability and quality of research evidence to decision makers who design policy and to inform the policy process by supporting more effective connections between the decision makers and the researchers.
Collaborative grants aim to provide assistance to Australian researchers to participate in multinational research collaborative projects with international researchers. The focus of these grants can be knowledge creation and/or research translation.
