Funding is available across five different schemes, for research projects which aim to improve patient outcomes in emergency healthcare in Queensland, and enhance the research culture in emergency medicine, paramedicine, and retrieval services.
Emerge – Funding specifically for clinicians who are new to research. This scheme provides project funding of up to $10,000, maximum term of up to one year
Jumpstart – Seed funding for innovative research, involving new collaborations and teams. Funding of up to $40,000 for a maximum term of up to one year
Leading Edge – Seed funding for innovative research with potential to attract future funding by other granting bodies (National Health and Medical Research Council, Medical Research Future Fund). Project funding of up to $100,000, with a maximum term of up to two years.
Project – Funding for larger research projects, preferably for collaboration across multiple sites and disciplines. Funding of up to $300,000 (maximum $100,000 per year), with a maximum term of three years. Project grants are only on offer in the first grant round of the year.
Research Capacity Building – Funding to enhance research capacity and capability in institutions, to embed research activity as a core business. Grants of up to $100,000, with a maximum term of up to three years.
In Round 39 of the Queensland Research Program, $700,000 in funding is available across the Emerge, Jumpstart, Leading Edge and Project schemes, with $300,000 available for Research Capacity Building grants.
