Scheme description

  • To create partnerships among policy makers, managers, service providers and researchers
  • To provide support to answer often complex and difficult questions that policy makers, managers and service providers face when making decisions and implementing policies that affect Australians' health and health care
  • Not intended for research that universities and research institutes could address via other NHMRC schemes such as a Project Grant

The NHMRC will provide support of up to $1.5 million for up to 5 years.


  • Applications must be a joint submission from a research agency such a university or research institute (NHMRC administering institution) and one or more health policy/practice agencies (Partner organisation)
  • A Partner organisation should be capable of implementing policy and service delivery and would normally not be able to access funding through most NHMRC funding mechanisms
  • NHMRC Approved Administering Institutions cannot be named as a Partner organisation unless they are primarily involved in delivering health policy and/or health services, and obtain a waiver from NHMRC
  • The partner organisation is obligated to commit at least a 50% of the value requested from the NHMRC in cash or in-kind
  • Applicants are free to hold, or apply for, other NHMRC grants during the period of funding offered under a current round.
