The Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme is an innovative annual national research project grants funding scheme which brings together government and other funders to collaboratively fund cancer research in Australia.
PdCCRS applications are invited from appropriately qualified researchers affiliated with an NHMRC approved Administering Institution. Applicants must be Australia or New Zealand citizens, a permanent resident or hold a valid work visa, and be present in Australia for 80% of the project period.
Applicants must submit an Ideas grant application or a Clinical Trials and Cohort Studies grant application to NHMRC through Sapphire indicating the application is to be considered for funding by Cancer Australia. In addition to submission of an NHMRC grant application, a completed PdCCRS Questions form must be submitted directly to Cancer Australia.
The Chief Investigator A (CIA) must be the same person as nominated as CIA on the NHMRC application. The CIA can only submit a maximum of two applications to the 2022 round of the PdCCRS. Each NHMRC application ID can only be used to apply for one Cancer Australia grant and should be for the most relevant funding category, i.e., A, B, or C.
Applications must be submitted to NHMRC and to Cancer Australia by the closing time and date as published in the relevant grant guidelines. The proposed research must directly align with at least one research priority area specified by Cancer Australia or its Funding Partners.
Standard PdCCRS applications can be submitted through the NHMRC Ideas Grants or Clinical Trials and Cohort Studies grants schemes and must satisfy all the requirements set out in the NHMRC Grant Guidelines as published on GrantConnect in addition to satisfying the requirements as set out in the 2022 PdCCRS Grant Guidelines.
