NHMRC-EU Collaborative Research Grants 2019 Funding (Round 1)

The NHMRC-EU Collaborative Research Grants scheme provides a contribution to Australian institutions and researchers who are participating in leading international collaborative research that has been selected for funding through Horizon 2020. Horizon 2020 is currently the EU’s main instrument for funding research and development and will run until 2020.

Further information on Horizon 2020, including the timing and application process for EU topics, is available from the EU website.


Grant value is estimated at up to AUD $500,000, for up to five years.
