EFECF is a public benevolent institution that seeks to benefit the wider Australian disability sector as a whole, with an emphasis on people with an intellectual disability. EFECF provides grants to researchers and postgraduate students undertaking research into significant issues for the Australian disability sector.


Research Grants
EFECF will give preference to research projects that address areas where there is little or no research, especially around issues that have a significant impact on the ability of people with a disability (particularly an intellectual disability) to lead an ordinary life. EFECF is also interested in the translation of research findings into implications for policy and practice in a form that is useful and accessible to practitioners, service providers and policy makers.

Funding
In 2013 EFECF will make one award of $40,000 to fund research into issues of key importance to the Australian disability sector, particularly issues relating to intellectual disability. Overheads or infrastructure costs will not be covered in an EFECF award.

Criteria
Preference will be given to researchers who formulate an appropriate dissemination strategy in their grant application form. Research projects will be assessed against the following three criteria:

  • Research impact (impact of research question and potential outcomes for people with a disability)

  • Research quality (excellence in project conception, methodology and leadership)

  • Productivity (justification of resources, likelihood of successful delivery, and dissemination strategy)


Submission

Please submit a hardcopy of finalised proposals to the Research Branch, accompanied by a completed and signed hardcopy of the University's Grant Application Coversheet.

The opportunity uses the R01 Research Project Grant (R01) funding mechanism.


Purpose of Grant

The purpose of this opportunity is to inform the scientific community of the pain research interests of the various Institutes and Centers (ICs) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and to stimulate and foster a wide range of basic, clinical, and translational studies on pain as they relate to the missions of these ICs. New advances are needed in every area of pain research, from the micro perspective of molecular sciences to the macro perspective of behavioural and social sciences. Although great strides have been made in some areas, such as the identification of neural pathways of pain, the experience of pain and the challenge of treatment have remained uniquely individual and unsolved.

A funding mechanism to support a discrete, specified, circumscribed project to be performed by the named investigator(s) in an area representing their specific interest areas and competencies.


Purpose of Grant

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is intended to appeal to a broad audience of alcohol and HIV/AIDS researchers, including:

  • alcohol researchers with no prior experience in HIV/AIDS research but with a keen appreciation for the relationship between problem drinking and HIV/AIDS and a strong interest in acquiring such experience.
  • HIV/AIDS researchers with no prior alcohol research experience who realize the importance of more intensive alcohol interventions to improving clinical outcomes among HIV-infected individuals; and those with prior research experience in the area of co-occurring HIV/AIDS and alcohol and other substance abuse.

The primary objectives for this announcement are to increase research:

  1. To characterise the relative importance of reducing alcohol misuse in the prevention of acquisition and transmission of HIV in order to identify and apply appropriate alcohol and HIV interventions as public health measures
  2. To more fully understand and prevent the progression of HIV disease in the presence of continued alcohol exposure; and
  3. To develop operational research frameworks for addressing the occurrence and persistence of infections in high-risk populations (e.g. minority women, young gay men, etc.), and translate findings into effective, culturally appropriate preventive and treatment interventions for these targeted populations.

EFECF is a public benevolent institution that seeks to benefit the wider Australian disability sector as a whole, with an emphasis on people with an intellectual disability. EFECF provides grants to researchers and postgraduate students undertaking research into significant issues for the Australian disability sector.


Research Grants
EFECF will give preference to research projects that address areas where there is little or no research, especially around issues that have a significant impact on the ability of people with a disability (particularly an intellectual disability) to lead an ordinary life. EFECF is also interested in the translation of research findings into implications for policy and practice in a form that is useful and accessible to practitioners, service providers and policy makers.

Funding
In 2013 EFECF will make one award of $40,000 to fund research into issues of key importance to the Australian disability sector, particularly issues relating to intellectual disability. Overheads or infrastructure costs will not be covered in an EFECF award.

Criteria
Preference will be given to researchers who formulate an appropriate dissemination strategy in their grant application form. Research projects will be assessed against the following three criteria:

  • Research impact (impact of research question and potential outcomes for people with a disability)

  • Research quality (excellence in project conception, methodology and leadership)

  • Productivity (justification of resources, likelihood of successful delivery, and dissemination strategy)


Submission

Please submit a hardcopy of finalised proposals to the Research Branch, accompanied by a completed and signed hardcopy of the University's Grant Application Coversheet.

The opportunity uses the R01 Research Project Grant (R01) funding mechanism.


Purpose of Grant

The purpose of this opportunity is to inform the scientific community of the pain research interests of the various Institutes and Centers (ICs) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and to stimulate and foster a wide range of basic, clinical, and translational studies on pain as they relate to the missions of these ICs. New advances are needed in every area of pain research, from the micro perspective of molecular sciences to the macro perspective of behavioural and social sciences. Although great strides have been made in some areas, such as the identification of neural pathways of pain, the experience of pain and the challenge of treatment have remained uniquely individual and unsolved.
