We foster a highly competitive grant process overseen by expert national and international panels that award grants based on highest overall merit in the following five core review criteria:
We also prioritise research that translates into demonstrable benefit to patients, staff and hospitals.
The Queensland Research Program was established in 2007 as a Queensland government response to broader issues of high workloads in emergency departments, and the increasing demands of treating large numbers of critically ill patients. In less than a decade, this program is already having a demonstrable impact on emergency medicine research capability and improving clinical care.
EMF offers six grant schemes within this Program, with the aim of delivering better patient outcomes in public hospitals and to develop research infrastructure within hospitals. We also aim to improve the care of patients in Emergency Departments and developing emergency medicine research capacity in Queensland.

In line with the EMF Constitution, our Board may accept grant applications outside of the grant categories outlined above at times that are not bound by published research grant rounds. The EMF Board may consider grant applications outside of the listed categories at their own discretion, on a case-by-case basis and reserves the right to make discretionary grants, subject to budgetary considerations. Please contact the Research Manager (email@example.com) for an initial discussion in regards grant applications falling outside of the grant categories.
While grants are only awarded to research administered and conducted in Queensland, we strongly encourage collaboration either in Australia or internationally. Our thanks to the Queensland Government, through Queensland Health, for funding this program.
EMF launched its Rural and Remote Research Program in 2014. This was our first national grant round funding research, education or promotional activities into emergency retrieval, care and medicine in rural and remote locations in Australia. Our thanks to Zoll Medical Australia and the generosity of a private donor for their financial support of this program.
