NHMRC Notification of Intent (NOI): Submission Deadlines

Applicants planning to apply for the below NHMRC schemes are required to submit a Notification of Intent (NOI) in ResearchMaster 6 (RME6) to be reviewed by Research Services.

Completion of an NOI e-form is vitally important for Research Services to be able to disseminate relevant information to applicants. It also informs your Head of School of your intent to apply for schemes and the subsequent resources that may be requested as part of your application.

In addition, they are used by Research Services and Faculties to plan grant development strategies and support initiatives which may be available centrally (such as grant writers, externally funded grant strategists and other specialist advice) or Faculty grant support initiatives (as advised by your Faculty). This supports submission of the best quality applications possible and supports the University’s grant target aspirations.

Note: Where applicants are considering applying to other NHMRC schemes not listed, or MRFF and other sponsors’ schemes, you are still strongly encouraged to submit an NOI before the scheme opens for applications.

Between the Research Services internal NOI deadline and the external scheme application open date, an NOI is no longer required and a Research Funding Request (RFR) e-form must be submitted instead. This allows your Head of School to sign off on your submission and, if successful, approve the establishment of the project in the School. If based on an earlier NOI for the same application, all previous information entered will flow through to the subsequent RFR. A completed RFR also ensures that an application appears on the investigator’s Individual Academic Profile (IAP).

NOI Submission Process

The NOI e-form is an internal process and is completed in the University’s ResearchMaster 6 (RME6) system. See the Quick Reference Guide for completing the NOI e-form.
