Clinical Trials and Cohort Studies Grants, Ideas Grants and Synergy Grants - Communications Approach
In response to RAO feedback we are aiming to increase transparency, fairness and consistency of Help Centre responses to frequently asked policy questions.
For any policy clarifications, applicants should contact their Research Administration Officer (RAO) for assistance. If further clarification is required, RAOs can contact NHMRC’s Research Help Centre.

Our approach to enquiries will be as follows:
- Enquiries from individual applicants will be redirected to the Administrative Institution’s RAO.
- Frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding scheme policy will be collated and then responded to via the scheme’s FAQ document on GrantConnect. NHMRC will advise if an enquiry will be responded to via the FAQ document which will be updated as needed.
- RAOs will be referred to the FAQ document when a specific enquiry has already been addressed in the FAQ document.
Policy enquiry deadlines and final FAQ release dates for each scheme are listed in the table below:
|Scheme||Enquiry deadline||Final FAQ release date|
|Clinical Trials and Cohort Studies Grants||30 April 2019||1 May 2019|
|Ideas Grants||30 April 2019||1 May 2019|
|Synergy Grants||23 April 2019||24 April 2019|
NHMRC’s Research Help Centre will continue to provide technical assistance to both applicants and RAOs.
