FutureHealth WA Major Research Grant Support 2015/16


FutureHealth WA

FutureHealth WA (FHWA) is a 2013 State government initiative (external site) allocating an additional $30 million for health and medical research (HMR) over four years, from 2013-14 to 2016-17.

FHWA seeks to develop and promote HMR in Western Australia and through this, provide opportunities to enhance the health of Western Australians.  It is intended that FHWA funds will be allocated according to research priorities determined by the State health system and the research industry.

The FHWA initiative is administered by the Research and Innovation Office in the Division of Clinical Services and Research.

Major Research Grant Support 2015/16

Through FHWA, the Department of Health WA, is offering in-principle funds and in-kind support for funding applications made by WA researchers to major national and international health and medical research funding bodies. 

It is intended that the Major Research Grant Support scheme will provide opportunities for strategic engagement between the health and medical research sector and the State. 

Support from the Department of Health is expected to boost WA researchers’ competitiveness and to leverage significant additional funding for WA.

Although this scheme is predominantly aimed at 2016 NHMRC Partnerships Projects that are being submitted to the NHMRC Peer Review Cycle 1 or 2, other equivalent partnership-type grant applications, with a closing date prior to 30 June 2016, will also be considered.
