Infrastructure Support grants aim to provide funding to support the infrastructure required to complete health and medical research in Australia.
Research Support grants aim to provide funding to support the research undertaken to promote the health of Australians.
The People Support grants and fellowships provide funding to support the people required to complete health and medical research in Australia.
Targeted Calls for Research
An NHMRC Targeted Call for Research (TCR) is typically a one-time solicitation for grant applications addressing a defined research topic. A TCR specifies the scope and objectives of the research to be proposed, application requirements and procedures, and the review criteria to be applied in the evaluation of applications submitted in response to the TCR.In alignment with the overarching goals of NHMRC's Strategic Plan, a TCR will stimulate or greatly advance research in a particular area of health and medical science that will benefit the health of Australians.
TCRs complement NHMRC's existing suite of funding schemes by providing a means for funding research in a way which is responsive, flexible and efficient. It should be noted that Urgent Calls for Research are a special type of TCR for which selection criteria and processes are already established.
