NHMRC Webinar (hosted by ANDS)

Speaker: Professor Anne Kelso AO CEO of NHMRC

NHMRC is making improvements to its grant funding program to ensure it continues to support the best Australian health and medical research and researchers. Professor Anne Kelso AO, CEO of NHMRC, will present an update on NHMRC’s new grant program. The improvements aim to: • encourage greater creativity and innovation in research, • provide opportunities for
talented researchers at all career stages to contribute to the improvement of
human health, and • minimise the burden on researchers of application and peer
review so that researchers can spend more time producing high quality research.
The webinar will be of interest to: • Researchers who are currently funded by
NHMRC • Researchers who intend to seek NHMRC funding in the future •
Representatives of universities, hospitals and medical research institutes. •
Peak health and medical research bodies • Research administrators and managers
The future.nhmrc.gov.au
website will be updated soon after the webinar with detailed information on the
matters discussed. Webinar recording If you cannot attend the live webinar a
recording will be published on the NHMRC website and sent to all those who
register. Please note that, while there is no limit on the number of people who
can register for the webinar, there is a limit on the number of live attendees.
People will be connected on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. We encourage
you to book a meeting room with others to limit the number of connections. Q
and A The webinar technology allows attendees to ask questions in real time via
a text-based system. Professor Kelso will set aside 15 minutes or so at the end
of the webinar to address as many of these questions as possible. All the
questions asked, whether they are addressed in the webinar or not, will be
recorded and added to the list of frequently asked questions on the NHMRC
website located at https://www.nhmrc.gov.au/restructure/faq.
