The objectives of the MRFF – 2021 Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) grant opportunity are to:
- Stream 1 (Targeted Call for Research): through a competitively selected national consortium, improve care for mild TBI by designing and implementing informatics approaches that gather nationally representative social, biological, health, clinical, intervention and outcome data of value to people with lived experience of TBI
- Stream 2 (Targeted Call for Research): develop and implement new approaches for the prevention, diagnosis and/or treatment of sports-related concussion
The intended outcome of the research is to improve the health and wellbeing of Australians by:
- Stream 1 (Targeted Call for Research): supporting the development of more effective, evidence-based care for mild TBI through increased knowledge and its effective application

Both streams are intended to support large-scale interdisciplinary research.
