The Translational Research Grants Scheme provides grants to staff within NSW Local Health Districts, Ambulance Service of NSW and Specialty Health Networks including medical staff, nursing staff, allied health professionals and population health practitioners for research and evaluation projects that will translate into better patient outcomes, health service delivery, and population health and wellbeing.
The scheme is designed to accelerate the development of research capabilities and evidence translation within the NSW Health system, with a total of $9.1 million available in the initial funding round, allocated over a two year period. Grants ranging from $50,000 to $1 million will be provided to successful applicants for projects of one to two years’ duration.
Applicants were encouraged to partner with other research organisations such as universities and medical research institutes, with the research project led by an employee of a host organisation within the health system.
The Translational Research Grants Scheme is now closed for submissions.
