What we’re funding

$22.3 million over 4 years to organisations to support researchers in developing their early and innovative health and medical research ideas.

Desired outcomes

The purpose of this research funding is to:

  • support researchers to develop their health and medical research ideas
  • improve patient outcomes in the long term
  • create new economic and job opportunities.

Key elements

This program will support researchers to develop their ideas and transform them into new treatments and technologies to improve patient outcomes.

Why it’s important

  • Ground-breaking research is invaluable to the future of healthcare. However, financial barriers and attracting partners can make it difficult to transform ideas into viable technologies. This measure will break through these barriers.

How to apply

Applications for the $22.3 million grant round under the program closed on 21 August 2018. Applications are currently being assessed.
