Launch of round 6 of the Victorian Medical Research Acceleration Fund

Posted: 21 October

Closes: 22 November 4 pm

Applications for Round 6 of the Victorian Medical Research Acceleration Fund are now open.

Launched by the Victorian Government in 2017, each year the Fund provides funding support to accelerate health and medical research and fast-track innovative projects from research
to real-world impact.

Round 6 of the Victorian Medical Research Acceleration Fund will include $5 million in funding through two streams.

  • Foundation Stream: $3 million in funding to medical research projects that can deliver benefits to Victoria.
  • Public Health and Health Inequalities Stream: $2 million in funding for medical research projects addressing public health inequalities that affect priority populations in Victoria.

To help address underrepresentation of women in health and medical research, projects led by women or research teams comprised of at least 50% women will receive an added assessment weighting. Full details of this provision can be found in the Program Guidelines.

Projects are eligible for either the Victorian Medical Research Acceleration Fund or the mRNA Victoria Research Acceleration Fund.

Applications will be accepted until 4pm on 22 November 2022.
