8 1 Budget appropriations $1000 Figure 1 $800 $ Million $600 $400 $200 $ The figure above shows budget appropriations for the NHMRC as reported in each year s Portfolio Budget Statements (PBS) document. The large increase in appropriation in is due to a one-off increase in funds to support the Australia Fellowships scheme and a general increase in funds following the Grant Review (2004). NHMRC RESEARCH FUNDING FACTS BOOK

This will therefore include ongoing grants that commenced funding any time in the previous five years prior to that calendar year. For example, in 2011 there will be active grants that commenced funding in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, all of which will receive some money in NHMRC RESEARCH FUNDING FACTS BOOK 2011

10 2b Number of new grants by selected funding types for application years 2002, 2006 and 2011 Figure 2b Grant type Research Fellowships Practitioner Fellowships Career Development Fellowships Early Career Fellowships (Australia) Early Career Fellowships (Overseas) Scholarships Project Grants New grants are grants that have started to receive the first of their awarded funding in a particular calendar year. Generally, these grants would have been awarded in the previous year s grant application round. For example, new grants in 2011 are likely to have been successful grant applications from the 2010 grant application round. NHMRC RESEARCH FUNDING FACTS BOOK

14 This figure illustrates NHMRC s annual research expenditure for calendar years 2001 and 2011 split by the Broad Research Area (BRA) of the grant. The BRA is assigned to the grant by the grant applicant at the time of application and is used to broadly classify the type of research being conducted.

The data is drawn from people who are directly supported by people support schemes as well as estimates of people funded by research support schemes. Supported personnel may include Chief Investigators, research assistants, clinicians, nurses and allied health professionals. 8 NHMRC RESEARCH FUNDING FACTS BOOK 2011

These data show how NHMRC research grants have been used to leverage additional funding from other sources to support the research. This information comes from the End of Grant Final Report researchers normally submit within 6 months upon completion of their research. Of the 4,322 final reports submitted to NHMRC for the period , 907 (21%) indicated that NHMRC funding has been used to leverage research funding from other sources. 2,111 instances of leveraged funding were reported from these 907 Final Reports. 10 NHMRC RESEARCH FUNDING FACTS BOOK 2011

National collaborations and partnerships includes funding arrangements with Australian Research Council, and, via the NHMRC partnerships grants scheme through various state/territory government agencies, industry groups and private companies. Co-funding arrangements exist with Alzheimer s Australia, Diabetes Australia, National Heart Foundation, Kidney Health Australia, Retina Australia, Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Prostate Cancer Foundation and MS Research Australia.

This target was recommended by a House of Representatives report, Health is Life. In 2002, this recommendation was incorporated into the Portfolio Budget Statements. In 2008, this target was reached. By 2010, annual expenditure on Indigenous health had grown to 5.9% of total annual research funding. NHMRC RESEARCH FUNDING FACTS BOOK

The Administering Institution is the institution that submits a grant funding application on behalf of the applicant and then administers any grant funds awarded. The Administering Institution may not necessarily be the institution where the research actually takes place. NHMRC RESEARCH FUNDING FACTS BOOK

The figure above shows that during the period more than 78% of project grants were administered by the university sector, while only 53% of the research was actually undertaken at universities. Less than 1% of research was administered by hospitals, however, more than 16% of research was actually undertaken at hospitals. The research itself may be conducted in a number of different institutions (e.g. at affiliated hospitals, in the community, or at collaborating institutions). 16 NHMRC RESEARCH FUNDING FACTS BOOK 2011

24 14 Project grants distribution by Actual Institution type and Broad Research Area application years Figure 14 Clinical medicine Biomedical Public health Health services University Research Institute Hospital Almost 95% of NHMRC-funded research is undertaken at either a university, a medical research institute or a hospital/clinical setting with the remaining 5% spread between other government agencies (e.g. CSIRO) or philanthropic organisations (e.g. NSW Cancer Council). These data show how the research within the three major funding sectors is distributed across the four research pillars. The majority of the research undertaken at universities and medical research institutes is either biomedical and clinical medicine while at hospitals, not surprisingly, clinical research is most prevalent. Public health research is generally featured evenly across the three sectors while health services research occurs mainly in the hospital and university sectors. NHMRC RESEARCH FUNDING FACTS BOOK

25 Figure Success rates for NHMRC Project Grants by state and territory 2006 and State/territory Apps received Number funded Success rate Apps received Number funded Success rate Australian Capital Territory % % New South Wales % % Northern Territory % % Queensland % % South Australia % % Tasmania % % Victoria % % Western Australia % % Total % % The table above provides success rates for Project Grants based on the state or territory of the institution submitting the grant application. Some caution should be taken with the interpretation of these data. This is particularly the case for ACT, NT and TAS where the success rates may be impacted at a greater level by small variations in the number of grant applications submitted in a particular year. 18 NHMRC RESEARCH FUNDING FACTS BOOK 2011

26 16 Fundability of NHMRC Standard Project Grants following peer review Figure Number of applications assessed as not fundable Number of applications assessed as fundable but not funded Number of applications funded This figure shows the distribution of grant applications based on: the number of grants that are actually funded those that were fundable but not funded (grants that were given a final score that is deemed to be worthy of funding, but for which funding was not available) those that were unfundable (grants that fell into a scoring category that is considered to be not worthy of funding support). The large number of applications in the 2006 application year is an outlier due to a once-off change in the application submission process. NHMRC RESEARCH FUNDING FACTS BOOK
