Financial support is on offer for research investigations into safety, compensation, recovery and neurotrauma.

The Institute of Compensation and Recovery Research (ISCRR) is offering grants for small-scale research projects conducted over a 12-month period.

Individual grants of $20,000 and $50,000 will be awarded to projects aligned to ISCRR’s research programs, the Institute said in a media statement.

These programs include occupational health and safety, return to work and system design, health and disability services delivery, and neurotrauma.

A total of $400,000 is on offer.

“Now in its fourth year, the annual development grants program has awarded $1,092,189 to date for researchers to conduct 24 research projects across nine institutions,” the institute said.

“Three out of the four research projects completed from the first round of development grants already [demonstrate] impact,” the Institute’s CEO, Professor Niki Ellis, said.

One of the projects, for example, “developed a tool kit to improve knowledge and skills about work-related psycho-social factors present in musculoskeletal disorders”, she added.

Expressions of interest are open until Monday 14 October.
