*Please note: EOIs for this round of Seed Grants are now closed*
The Hopkins Centre is very pleased to announce the release of new 2023 Interdisciplinary Seed Funded Research Grants and Clinical Fellowships.
These research grant and fellowship schemes are an integral part of The Hopkins Centre’s approach to embed models of research that promote continuous, positive relationships and interactions between clinicians, researchers and other key end-users of research. The aim is to support new research that will improve disability and rehabilitation clinical practice, service delivery, and systems, as well as develop and maintain a credible exchange of scholarship and knowledge transfer to benefit rehabilitation services and the people who utilise these services.
Please view the linked guidelines below for everything you need to know about applying for a seed grant or clinical fellowship. The guideline includes important information on the priority areas of research, research opportunities/ objectives, timeframe, submission process, key dates, funding support and contact details.
Expressions of Interest EOI forms were due by 5pm on 15 February 2022
Please see forms below to download, save, complete and email with supporting documentation to the email@example.com.
Interdisciplinary Seed Grants
These seed grants are intended to support the establishment and conduct of interdisciplinary research that promotes applied research on priority issues and improvements relevant to disability and rehabilitation clinical practice, service delivery and systems. Seed grants provide funding to support interdisciplinary, start-up research; pilot work; translation of research; or the progress and/or upscaling of existing research, with the expectation that interdisciplinary teams will consolidate collaborations that may lead to further research and funding opportunities and/or achieve specific practice or service delivery impacts.

Clinical Fellowships are an integral part of The Hopkins Centre’s approach to embedded models of research that promote continuous, positive relationships and interactions between clinicians, researchers and other key end-users of research. The aim is to develop and maintain a credible exchange of scholarship and knowledge transfer to benefit rehabilitation services and the people who utilise these services. The objectives of Clinical Fellowships are to increase clinician-led research to ensure close links between practice and research, build research capacity and optimise translation opportunities in the area of rehabilitation.
The primary focus of Fellowships is research that improves outcomes for people living with the long-term consequences of acquired brain injury, amputation, persistent pain, and spinal cord injury as well as developmental, age-related and other life-long disabling conditions. It includes people’s networks of support. Applications are open to a range of disciplines including medicine, nursing, allied health and clinicians at any stage of their career.

Hopkins Research Funding Information Session and Q&A
An information session was held on online via Microsoft Teams on Wednesday 25 January 2022, facilitated by Prof. Tamara Ownsworth and Associate Prof. David Trembath.
The session focussed on discussing guidelines, key priority areas, examples of seed and fellowship projects in building research capacity.

The Hopkins Centre is committed to improving disability and rehabilitation practices, service delivery and systems by developing interdisciplinary research evidence about real world problems and translating and implementing novel solutions into practice. The ultimate beneficiaries of these research schemes are people living with the long-term consequences of acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation, persistent pain, as well as developmental, age-related, other life-long disabling conditions and support networks.
We are excited to be supporting bold ideas that can translate into better solutions and encourage you to come to this information session to learn more about this research capacity opportunity.
