  • Develop or use novel research concepts, approaches, methodologies, technologies or interventions
  • Propose a reinterpretation, refinement, improvement or new application of existing theoretical concepts, approaches, methodologies, technologies or interventions
  • Integrate and adapt concepts, approaches, methodologies, technologies or interventions from other research fields or disciplines for a new purpose or in a new way.

Grants are available for early-career researchers who have not held a substantial grant such as NHMRC or equivalent. Researchers without an advanced degree can apply provided they have an appropriate mentor. A total grant pool of up to $100,000 is available. It is anticipated that up to two grants of $50,000 for a one-year project duration will be awarded.
