2024 Interdisciplinary Seed Grant Research Scheme

EOIs submissions for Round 8 Seed Grants close at 5pm, 16 February 2024.

The Hopkins Centre is very pleased to announce the release of the 2024 Interdisciplinary Seed Funded Research Grants.

This seed grant research scheme is 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 forms below for everything you need to know about applying for a seed grant. The guideline includes important information on the priority areas of research, research opportunities/ objectives, timeframe, submission process, key dates, funding support and contact details.

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.

We encourage you to review the guidelines closely and check your eligibility and timeline for applications. To apply for a grant, you need to complete all fields of the Seed Funded Research EOI Form and submit via email to the hopkinscentre@griffith.edu.au with supporting documentation.

Expressions of Interest EOI forms are due by 5pm on 16 February 2024.
