Seed Funding Scheme

The Seed Funding Scheme is intended to support translational research projects that address TAAHC strategic research priorities and that demonstrate the potential to develop into significant programs of work capable of accessing external funding sources.

The scheme recognises that collaboration and partnership between clinicians, researchers and consumers is critical to establishing high-level research programs that can translate research outcomes into policy and practice. The scheme provides seed funding to establish collaborative, high-level research programs that can attract external research funding and deliver improvements in health outcomes to northern Queensland communities.

Applications must be a collaboration between two or more TAAHC Founding Members or a collaboration between one or more TAAHC Founding Members and a General Practice provider in the TAAHC region.
