Announcements & updates
2020 Programme funding now open
By HRC Team - 5 Aug, 2019
Applications for HRC Programme funding open on 5 August, with a couple of key changes to note this year, including:
Allowance for co-directors
We now welcome proposals for Programme co-directors under circumstances that would result in a research team of exceptional strength, such as interdisciplinary work. See pages 3-4 of the 2020 Programme Application Guidelines for more information.
New Māori Health Advancement criterion
For many years, the HRC research contract has specified that research providers must have policies and processes in place to ensure that consultation with Māori has occurred, and that research is responsive to the needs of Māori. With our 2020 Programme funding round, we're introducing a new Māori Health Advancement criterion to replace the existing Māori responsiveness section in our application forms. Please read the Application Guidelines on our funding page and our new Māori Health Advancement Guidelines for all you need to know.
