NHMRC’s consultations on peer review for the new grant program

Following the 2016 Structural Review of NHMRC’s Grant Program (the Structural Review) and Minister Greg Hunt’s May 2017 announcement of our new grant program, the Office of NHMRC has been working closely with Research Committee to finalise technical details of, and transitional arrangements to the new program.

NHMRC are inviting  submissions to its consultation paper on the peer review in the new grant program. WAHTN would welcome reviews from WAHTN partner members. If you wish to contribute to WAHTN’s submission, please forward comments to info@wahtn.org by 17 November.

In addition, Prof. Anne Kelso will be conducting a series of public consultation events in most capital cities, outlining peer review parameters and processes and inviting the research sector’s perspectives on peer review for the new grant program. Registrations are currently being accepted through Eventbrite. Places are limited:  21 November 2017 – Perth, WA

We encourage you to attend this forum and we would appreciate you highlighting both the consultation paper and the public event to your colleagues.

Please contact grant.implementation@nhmrc.gov.au if you have any questions about the consultation events or the consultation paper.
