NHMRC Partnership Projects

NHMRC Partnership Projects

Status Open
Aim The NHMRC Partnerships for Better Health – Partnership Projects scheme is designed by the NHMRC to more effectively integrate evidence into health policy and service delivery.

It helps create partnerships among decision makers, policy makers, managers, clinicians and researchers. The scheme provides funding and support to create new opportunities for researchers and policy makers to work together to define research questions and undertake research and also to interpret and implement the findings.

Partnership Projects will answer a specific research question to influence health and well-being through changes in the delivery, organisation, funding and access to health services.

Partnership Projects should focus on the design and uptake, at the population or community level, of interventions that are known to be efficacious at the individual level and should have demonstrable application for health services or for health policy, at least for the partner organisations involved and preferably more generally, including for population-level application.

Funding

Projects may be of any duration up to five years and the maximum amount of NHMRC funding that may be requested for a single application is $1.5 million.

Faculty Processes

The Faculties have their own approval and review processes for grants under this scheme. They may also have deadlines for submission of draft applications that are earlier than the Research Office deadlines. Please ensure that you contact your Faculty, as early as possible, for information on process and deadlines. Faculty contacts:
