Announcement of SEED Funding

Congratulations to SEED funding awardees this year

Purpose of Fund: To seed research and development projects that will lead to technological solutions to clinical problems with a pathway to implementation through clinical trials and/or commercialisation.
Applications must be jointly led by at least two CIs, one each from UNSW Faculties of Engineering and Medicine (can be a conjoint appointment with a preference for clinical academics). Demonstrably committed industry partner inclusion is also considered to be advantageous. Funding will be provided up to $150k per annum for up to three years subject to demonstration of satisfactory progress in annual reviews.
