Research funding allocation and support

AusHSI assists with or oversee competitive funding rounds on behalf of health service clients. By identifying and recommending funding for individual projects to improve health services, we ensure:

  • data can be used to signal an improvement of services by cost, quality or safety outcome
  • projects are novel, scientifically rigorous and feasible within given timeframes
  • projects align with strategic organisational priorities.

As part of these activities, we provide ongoing mentoring and support for clinician researchers, thereby building knowledge and strengthening innovation capacity.
