The Development Grant scheme will provide support for individual researchers and/or research teams to undertake health and medical research within Australia at the proof-of-concept stage that specifically drives towards a commercial outcome within a foreseeable timeframe.

The Development Grants scheme supports the commercial development of a product, process, procedure or service that, if applied, would result in improved health care, disease prevention or provide health cost savings.

Research supported by this scheme must, via a commercial business plan, have detailed feasible strategies for commercialisation that takes into account the regulatory pathway, protectable IP, commercial barriers and potential routes to market.

Note: Applicants are required to, as part of their grant proposal, provide a business case for commercialisation of proposed research. See section 5.3 of the Development Grants Scheme-Specific Funding Rules and section 3.2 of the Development Grants Scheme-Specific Advice and Instructions

Further information, including Funding Rules and Advice and Instructions to Applicants for this scheme can be found on the NHMRC website for Development Grants.
