Synergy Grant Scheme – cancelled for 2020

NHMRC has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Synergy Grant round.  This will be very disappointing for many researchers who have worked hard to develop their research plan and build the collaborations underpinning this important scheme. With this in mind, NHMRC would like all RAOs to encourage applicants to export application previews from Sapphire before their Synergy Grant application is no longer accessible. This will assist in future application rounds and, if applicable, assist with applying in other NHMRC schemes currently available.

Applicants will have until COB 6 April 2020 to complete these exports.

If applicants require any assistance with this process please email the Research Help Centre via email at Unfortunately due to COVID-19 all Help Desk staff are operating with reduced staffing and will reply as soon as possible.

Further information on changes to NHMRC 2020 funding schemes is available on the NHMRC website.
