2018 Trans-Tasman Research Collaboration Funding Round

Red Nose’s vision is a future where no child dies suddenly and unexpectedly during pregnancy, infancy or in childhood.

Red Nose and Cure Kids (New Zealand) are pleased to continue the collaborative Trans-Tasman funding initiative to support research projects aimed at improving the lives of babies and young children.

In this round of funding, Red Nose is committed to funding AU$100,000 to research relating to the cause(s) and prevention of sudden and unexpected perinatal and infant death.

Applications are open for either:

  • Trans-Tasman research project proposals of up to AU$190,000 (NZ$200,000). Projects are to be 1-3 years in duration, total budget cannot exceed AU$190,000.
  • Australian specific proposals (with no New Zealand collaboration) of up to AU$100,000. Projects are to be 1-3 years in duration, total budget cannot exceed AU$100,000.

Applications for both streams of funding are to be submitted using the same application form template.

Please note that proposals for Trans-Tasman collaborative projects will be considered competitively against proposals received by Cure Kids, New Zealand via their parallel review process in New Zealand.

Applications are to be submitted using the application form template, which can be downloaded here.

Applications will undergo a thorough review by representatives from the Red Nose National Scientific Advisory Group (NSAG) and external peer reviewers. In addition to scientific excellence, reviewers will consider the following:

  1. Potential of the proposed research
  2. Adequacy of experimental design
  3. Applicant’s training and experience
  4. Originality of project
  5. Appreciation of methodological problems
  6. Value for money
