Cancer Australia has developed the Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme to support research that reduces the impact of cancer on the community and improves outcomes for people affected by cancer.
The Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme is an innovative annual national research project grants funding scheme which brings together government and other funders of cancer research to collaboratively fund cancer research in Australia.
This funding scheme helps to:
- coordinate funding of priority-driven cancer research at the national level,
- foster collaboration between cancer researchers to build Australia’s cancer research capacity, and
- foster consumer participation in cancer research, from design to implementation.
Working with the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC)
This research scheme is managed by Cancer Australia and the agency collaborates with the NHMRC in this grant scheme. The NHMRC facilitates registration and initial assessment of applications, and endorses grants funded through this scheme in recognition of their scientific merit.
