The Independent Medical Research Institutes Infrastructure Support Scheme (IRIISS) commenced in 2005 following an Australian Government budget decision to allocate funds for overhead infrastructure support to independent medical research institutes managing NHMRC research funds. This reflected reviews that found infrastructure costs for medical research institutes were substantial.
IRIISS aims to enhance the development and maintenance of infrastructure in independent medical research institutes for the support of high quality health and medical research.
