Triple I Research Seed Grants

Each year, seed grants of $75,000 are available. These funds support development and nurturing of broad research collaborations across the Triple I network. Projects are expected to focus on building novel programs and solutions or transforming existing research across disparate organisational hubs into a new, harmonised entity. Unsuccessful seed grants are eligible for other forms of support from the Triple I CAG, including collaborative workshops, grant preparation support and philanthropic exposure. Applications are reviewed by an external grant review panel prior to the award being made.

In 2020, seed grants opened in February and the EOI will close in May. Full applications will be requested from a subset of applicants, due later in the year. Please contact Rebekah Puls.

Triple I Clinical Academic Group Secondment/Exchange Program

Triple I Research supports capacity building and networking across UNSW Medicine and beyond. Placements and exchange are an opportunity to promote researcher development and training by linking partner organisations, health districts and clinical/laboratory environments.

Grants of up to $5,000, supported by a detailed budget, are available for secondment/exchange.

Collaboration & Big Ideas Workshops

An increased focus on collaboration in research will facilitate larger research projects that leverage the local landscape and add value over and above pre-existing initiatives and capabilities. Workshops are held that incorporate experts to facilitate and provide independent advice in the development of big ideas. If you have a Big Idea, please complete the attached form and send it to Rebekah Puls, who will seek review through the Executive Committee to take the idea forward.

Networking Support

We are developing the visibility of the research workforce across the SPHERE partnership. An enabling platform – the UNSW-SPHERE CRM – is in development to facilitate this. If you are looking for individuals or groups with specific skills or interests, we are also happy to assist where possible.
