ASTAR–NZ HRC Joint Call for Proposals 2010
Summary of Initiative
The Singapore Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and the New Zealand Health Research Council (NZ HRC) jointly announce the second call for research proposals under the A*STAR – NZ HRC Memorandum of Understanding signed on 6 October 2008.
The objective of this call is to promote and encourage collaborative research and development activities amongst researchers from Singapore public sector research organizations, including A*STAR research institutes and New Zealand-based public institutes in the area of Cancer Research.
Each research team must be made up of at least one Singapore-based researcher and one NZ-based researcher. The research project, which can last up to 2 years, must be conducted in Singapore and in New Zealand. A*STAR will fund the research costs of the Singapore-based researcher, while NZ HRC funds the research costs of the NZ-based researcher. The total value of a combined grant award will typically be in the range of NZ$300,000-500,000.
A panel of international and local experts will review and identify proposals based on their scientific and technological merits as well as their health significance and potential benefit to Singapore and New Zealand.
Applications will open on 1st Mar 2010 and all submissions are due on 31st May 2010.
