These grants provide experienced or emerging clinical researchers with the opportunity to work collaboratively on major research projects of direct relevance to our local community.
Research activities with a range of external partners such as the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Partnership Grants or Australian Research Council (ARC) linkage grants or other initiatives where our health service is a partner institution may include the development, implementation and/or evaluation of:
- New diagnostics, preventative measures, treatments, interventions and medical technologies and their translation into clinical practice.
- Innovative approaches that assist in the delivery of healthcare.
- Psychosocial and economic factors that influence healthcare delivery in acute health systems and in the community
The amount awarded will be dependent on the requirements requested of our organisation and be administered by an Australian-based organisation (NHMRC/ARC Administering institution if applying for one of the major grants).
Partnering to develop, test and implement patient-centred interventions
The collaboration between our researchers and external partners must facilitate high-quality health-related research with the potential for wide dissemination across the Gold Coast, Australia and internationally.
