  • help build Australia's health research skills, with a particular emphasis on clinical, public health and health service research
  • increase knowledge and support the development of evidence based health policies
  • encourage the growth of knowledge-based industries in Australia by helping to bridge the gap between research and industry and fostering an environment that values industry achievement
  • provide a vehicle for Australian researchers working overseas to return to Australia to continue their career development.
