A new model to commission research

Through the strategic use of the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) Rapid Applied Research Translation (RART) grant scheme, NSW Regional Health Partners (NSWRHP) seeks to provide a new model to commission research that maximises health impact and delivers against local, state and national health system priorities.

After the previous two rounds of MRFF RART grant funding conducted by NSWRHP, the need for process change has become apparent.

With this aim, NSWRHP will actively facilitate a six-step co-production process, pulling together multidisciplinary teams and developing implementation proposals that will create impact and outcomes in the health system. Working across multiple partners and scaling solutions for regional and rural Australia will remain priorities.
