The Translational Research Grants Scheme is now closed for submissions.
The Translational Research Grants Scheme is a new funding program of NSW Health. Grants are available 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. Funding will be provided for research and evaluation projects that will translate into better patient outcomes, health service delivery, and population health and wellbeing.
Applicants are encouraged to partner with other research organisations such as universities and medical research institutes. The research project must be led by an employee of a host organisation within the health system. The scheme is designed to accelerate the development of research capabilities and evidence translation within the NSW health system.
A total of $9.1 million will be available in this 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.
The application process will include three stages: expressions of interest; proposal development; and full applications. More information about who is eligible, how to apply for the grants, and information sessions for applicants is available in the Guidelines for Applicants.
