The Cooperative Research Centre for Developing Northern Australia (CRCNA) has launched its latest open funding call, looking for new ideas and R & D collaborations in health service delivery and models of care across Northern Australia.

“We are seeking big ideas and new solutions to resolve the long-standing challenges associated with health service delivery across the north.

“The CRCNA is committed to working with our Northern Australian Health Alliance members to ensure our work aligns with the long-term interests of the north’s communities and provides a pathway to meaningful change,” she said.

The themes of work identified in this expression of interest round include workforce development, innovative of models of care, building health research capacity, new models of health funding and health infrastructure.

“These themes reflect the highest priority areas identified in our 2020 Northern Australian heath service delivery situational analysis and have been further developed and supported by our panel of experts as part of the Northern Australian Health Alliance,” Ms Stünzner said.

Expressions of interest open Monday 7 March 2022 and will close 5pm AEST Monday 4 April 2022, with proponents asked to submit their proposed research proposal and responses to the selection criteria online here.
