Collaboration and Exchange Award

Encouraging fellows and scholars to visit research facilities (AUS & OS), to develop collaborations, exchange knowledge, develop skills and encourage innovation, therefore strengthen the recipient’s research capacity.

It is hoped that research facility visits can be combined with conference attendance to maximise the value from the award, this combination is encouraged but not obligatory.

Visits to facilities in Australia are within the scope of this award, however, the facilities should be remote from the location of the applicant, and this will be assessed on a case-by-case basis by the assessors.

For applicants to be considered for funding, they must meet the following eligibility criteria: 

  • As the Award will need to be administered by an NHMRC administering institution, applicants will need to be associated with such institutions to be eligible.
  • Open to all Fellows and Scholars who are currently, or in the past 12 months, funded by the Heart Foundation
  • The requested ‘collaboration and exchange’ activity must not be for more than six months.
  • Collaboration and Exchange Award can only be received once within the duration of a fellowship or scholarship
  • Travel must take place between 1 January 2023 and 31 December 2023
  • The fellow or scholar can apply to fund their travel costs to participate in the ‘collaboration and exchange’ activities, or for the travel costs for a career.
  • The Collaboration and Exchange award will provide up to $5,000.
    • Funds will be distributed as a one-off payment at the commencement of the award but must be acquitted against expenditure (and receipts provided).
    • Funds may be used for any legitimate travel related expenses (e.g., airfares to and from destination, accommodation at destination, food at destination and conference registrations).
    • Any funds for which legitimate receipts cannot be provided must be returned to the Heart Foundation.
    • The funds may not be used to offset salary, stipend or leave entitlements, or to cover overheads. Funds may not be used to support project costs.
  • Awardees will be required to provide a final report at the completion of the award, along with a financial acquittal at the completion of the project, including copies of invoices.
  • In addition, awardees will be required to comment on the impact of the Collaboration and Exchange Award on their work in their final Scholarship/Fellowship progress report.
