2019 NHMRC Equipment Grants APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN

NHMRC Equipment Grants are now open for application in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences (FMNHS).  These funds are to be used for equipment purchased in 2019 or 2020, but must be fully expended by the end of December 2020.

An individual is only permitted to be named as the primary Chief Investigator (CIA) on ONE (1) application, but can be named as CIB or subsequent CI on other applications.

Objectives & Selection Criteria

Please ensure that you address the following points in Q7 and keep your answer within the 300-word limit.

The NHMRC’s objectives of the scheme are:

  • to support Institutions to be strategic in the purchase of larger items of equipment that will benefit health and medical research in Australia;
  • to encourage the purchase of equipment that will be used collaboratively; and
  • to support the purchase of Australian-made equipment where possible.

The NHMRC requires the following criteria to be met for the allocation of these funds:

  • the equipment should support the highest quality health and medical research funded by the NHMRC (or through another competitive grant process);
  • consideration should be given to the lack of access to similar equipment in the Institution or region; and
  • thought should be given to the collaborative gain to be achieved through the use of the equipment e.g. multi-user equipment which crosses disciplines, research groups and departments.

The FMNHS will prioritise applications on the basis of:

1) Alignment with the Monash Academic Plan (2015-2020), particularly around the provision of advanced research infrastructure, and in the context of the platforms, talent enhancement and interdisciplinary research;

2) Opportunity for multiple use;

3) Alignment with the long term investment policy of the Faculty; and

4) Encouragement of innovation.

The application form can be found here.
