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:

  • facilities
  • research equipment
  • systems
  • services

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.
