Funding Announced for Artificial Intelligence Ideas
The National Critical Research Infrastructure initiative provides funding for research infrastructure that will be used to conduct world-class health and medical research. It includes funding for facilities in rural and remote areas so that people can participate in clinical trials without the need to travel to a major city. Investments will be made in:
- research equipment
The initiative will provide $605 million over 10 years and will oversee the management of the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF), a $20 billion long-term investment supporting Australian health and medical research.
To ensure Australia remains at the international forefront of advances in health and medical technology, the MRFF has announced a grant opportunity for applied artificial intelligence research in health. The objectives of the grant are to:
- translate or implement innovative AI technologies into health applications that benefit multiple health disciplines/areas
- involve consumers in the research journey to ensure the research is applicable to the needs of the Australian community
- increase AI workforce capacity and capability, particularly in relation to health, through cross-sector and interdisciplinary collaboration.
The intended outcome of the grant opportunity is to promote the application of novel AI technologies and methodologies to cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary health research that will transform health care and outcomes through improved preventive, diagnostic and treatment approaches.
Open date: 11 Feb 2020 09:00 AM AEDT.
Close date: 03 Mar 2020 05:00 PM AEDT.
What do you get?
Grants from $1 million to $5 million.
Who is this for?
Eligible organisations and researchers seeking to translate or implement Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies into health applications that benefit multiple health disciplines/areas, involve consumers in the research journey and will increase AI capacity and capability.
