Description:

NHMRC’s Boosting Dementia Research Grants Scheme Priority Round 4 (PR4) aims to provide assistance to Australian researchers to participate in multinational collaborative research projects that have been recommended for funding under the European Union Joint Programme – Neurodegenerative Disease (JPND): Call for Multinational Projects on Health and Social Care for Neurodegenerative Diseases.

JPND is aimed at tackling the challenge of neurodegenerative diseases and coordinating investment into research to find causes, develop cures, and identify appropriate ways to care for those with neurodegenerative diseases.

Eligibility:

Only research with a key focus on “Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias” will be funded through PR4. Applying for funding with any other focus under this call will not be supported through this scheme. The definition used for “Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias” is available on the JPND website (http://www.neurodegenerationresearch.eu/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/JPND-HSC-Call-2018-Australia.pdf).

To be eligible for PR4 funding, Australian researchers must apply to the JPND as part of a transnational consortium application.

Applications will only be accepted from NHMRC approved Administering Institutions. A list of NHMRC approved Administering Institutions is available at:
