Over the coming year, NHMRC is replacing RGMS with our new grants management system, Sapphire, in a modular way. 

As a first step, NHMRC is planning a pilot of Sapphire for the Development Grants 2020 Round, pending final testing. The pilot will give Development Grants applicants an opportunity to provide feedback and input on Sapphire. NHMRC will engage closely with participants throughout, and you will be well supported with resources to assist in navigating Sapphire, such as user guides, how-to videos and access to the Sapphire Help Centre

NHMRC will announce confirmation of the pilot at a later date, once final testing is complete. In the meantime, if you anticipate applying to Development Grant 2020, please seek further information on registering for Sapphire on NHMRC’s website

RAOs will be contacted directly with instructions on how to register for a Sapphire account. 

Until advised, all other NHMRC grant opportunities will continue in RGMS. 

Grant Guidelines for Development Grants 2020 round are now available through a Forecast Opportunity on GrantConnect. 

RAO alerts will be sent out when new information is available.
