2019 HRC and CatWalk Trust partnership

The HRC and CatWalk Trust have formed a partnership to fund research in spinal cord injury. We are seeking high quality biomedical and clinical research in spinal cord injury treatment and cure to improve the quality of life and productivity of individuals with spinal cord injuries, and thus reduce the impact of spinal cord injuries on healthcare services.

The total budget for this research initiative is $476,190 and the funding available per proposal is up to a maximum of $238,095 over 3 years (fully-costed, exclusive of GST).

The proposed research should realistically be able to be completed within a three-year timeframe. Funding is available for an immediate start of the project following notification of outcomes and it is expected that projects will commence within six months following notification.

Eligibility criteria

If you're the first-named investigator (i.e. lead researcher) on a partnership application, you must be based in New Zealand and employed with a New Zealand host organisation.

Collaborating researchers from outside New Zealand can, at the HRC’s discretion, be included as co-investigators on a HRC partnership contract, however they can't receive funding support for their institutional costs.

For more information about our contract requirements, please read the HRC rules document under 'Helpful links'.

Application process

If you're applying for funding through this partnership you'll need to submit a registration via HRC Gateway. You'll then need to complete a full application using the 2019 HRC and CatWalk Trust Partnership application form and 2019 HRC and CatWalk Trust Partnership budget. Full applications are submitted via HRC Gateway and a hardcopy must be sent to the HRC.
