Collaborative Research Grants
Collaborative Research Grants 2020
Round 3 – Opening early 2021
The Collaborative Research Grants will enable new research collaborations between clinicians, researchers, academics and clinical scientists from within Metro North Hospital and Health Service (MNHHS) and collaborating institutions. It is anticipated that research funded through the CRG program will form the basis for ongoing research collaborations, with the potential to lead to ongoing research of direct benefit to MNHHS patients and the community, and nationally competitive funding opportunities.
In partnership with MNHHS, QUT, UQ and QIMRB will each award up to three (3) grants while MNHHS and Griffith will offer one (1) inaugural collaborative research grant this round. The Grants will award up to $50,000 per research project that meets the program objectives.
The objectives of these grants are to:
- enable new research collaborations between MNHHS and collaborating institutions
- foster the professional career development of early career researchers
- support excellent basic and applied research collaborations between clinicians, scientists and academics
- enhance translation of research outcomes into tangible benefits for patients, health service and the community
- expand the use of novel clinical data through collaborative projects with potential for ongoing collaborative research and funding opportunities
- be led by a Chief Investigator (CIA) who is an early career researcher MNHHS employee (either full-time or part-time, temporary or permanent) at the time of application and for the duration of the project; and
- be co-led by a Chief Investigator (CIB) with an appointment at the collaborating institution for the CRG application (either UQ, QUT, QIMRB or Griffith); and
- be aligned with the Metro North Research Strategy 2017-2022 and be undertaken at, or significantly associated with MNHHS, and/or directly benefit MNHHS patients and the community; and
- meet the rest of the eligibility criteria in the Guidelines
The investigative team must outline a new research collaboration by identifying the knowledge gap which currently exists and the potential to bridge this gap through the proposed new academic and clinical collaboration.
