The AME IRG aims to develop novel and fresh R&D ideas that are in line with the AME strategies and goals, solicited through an investigator-led, ground up mechanism across the research ecosystem.

The AME YIRG is a sub-category of grants under the IRG and aims to groom young scientists towards conducting independent research.

Proposals will be solicited through a grant call mechanism.

Typically up to S$750k per project (inclusive of 20% indirect costs) over 3 years for IRG and up to S$300k per project (inclusive of 20% indirect costs) over 3 years for YIRG.
