The Western Health seeding grants provides funding for research conducted at Western Health. The aim of the grants is to support research that promote new areas of multi-disciplinary research in chronic disease, leading to improved patient outcomes.
The Office for Research is proud to announce the provision of seed funding for projects commencing in 2018.
Projects to the value of $10,000 -$20,000 have previously been funded in 2017. Funding amounts will be subject to the type of the project being proposed and its potential to inform clinical practice.
Guided by the proposed project scope, the review committee reserves the right to amend the grant amount to reflect the scope of the awarded project.
Research which generates pilot data contributing to an external grant application will be highly regarded. The funding will be awarded for research projects that meet these aims and will lead to improved research output and impact for Western Health and an increase in research funding from competitive grants.
Applications will be considered from all health-related disciplines: allied health professionals, nurses, medical practitioners and scientists and collaborative projects between departments are strongly encouraged.
