National Health & Medical Research Council
The objective of the Partnership Projects is to support connections, within the Australian context, that translate research evidence into health policy and health practice, to improve health services and processes.
Applications which address health services and programs to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people, an NHMRC strategic priority for investment, are also encouraged.
The objectives of the scheme are to:
meet the need for a more effective integration of research evidence into health policy and service delivery
create partnerships among policy makers, managers, service providers and researchers
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
be highly responsive to the priorities of government, the community and health professionals
enable applicants to apply for funding at any time during the year to allow researchers and partner organisations to develop timely collaborations.
