Collaborative Research Grants

Collaborative Research Grants 2022

Round 4 – Closed

The Collaborative Research Grants will enable new collaborative research between clinicians, academics and scientists with the potential to lead to ongoing research of direct benefit to Metro North Health patients and the community. It is anticipated that research funded through this program will form the basis for ongoing research collaborations and potential applications for nationally competitive funding.

For the fourth round of the Collaborative Research Grants, Metro North has established research collaboration agreements with the University of Queensland (UQ), Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Queensland Institute of Medical Research Berghofer (QIMRB), Griffith University (Griffith) and the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC).

In partnership with Metro North; UQ, QUT and QIMRB will award up to three grants, Griffith will award up to two grants and USC will award up to one grant (i.e. a total of up to twelve grants will be awarded in this year’s round). The total funds available for each project will be up to $50,000.

The objectives of these grants are to:

  • enable new collaborative research between Metro North Health and Collaborating Institutions with the potential for ongoing collaborative research and funding opportunities.
  • foster the professional career development of early career researchers, especially clinician researchers.
  • support excellent basic and applied research collaborations between clinicians, scientists and academics.
  • enhance the translation of research outcomes into benefits for Metro North Health patients, the health service and the community.
  • be led by a Chief Investigator (CIA) who is an early career researcher employee of Metro North Health at the time of application and for the duration of the project; and
  • be co-led by a Chief Investigator (CIB) who is an employee of the Collaborating Organisation (either UQ, QUT, QIMRB, Griffith or USC) for the duration of the project; and
  • be aligned with the Metro North Research Strategy 2017-2022 and be undertaken at, or significantly associated with Metro North, and/or directly benefit Metro North 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.
