MRFF – MTPConnect REDI Fellowship Program – Final Round

The REDI Fellowship Program can provide up to $250,000 per fellow, per annum, for industry fellowships giving Australian, international and/or multinational MTP companies the financial support to bring Australian academics, clinicians and MTP professionals in-house for up to twelve months to work on priority medical research projects.

A REDI Fellowship requires a sponsor (industry), a fellow (e.g. researcher, academic, clinician, tech transfer professional) and a specific research and development project focussing on human health outcomes. The application requires sponsor companies to have reached or surpassed the product (therapeutic, medical device, digital health) development inflection point and be able to provide high level support for the growth of the fellow, with no minimum staff limit.

Eligible sponsors can select three types of Fellowships to apply for which need to be completed by 31 December 2023:
• One-year full time
• 6–12 months full time
• 6–12 months where the fellow spends 50% of time working with the sponsor.

External deadline: 27 July 2022.
