Monash Research Office is holding a seminar on RGMS at Parkville Campus
The NHMRC has migrated to a new grant application system called the Research Grants Management System (RGMS). This is an online submission program, allowing researchers to complete, certify and submit their application electronically with the assistance of their Research Administration Officer. RGMS was trialed on two schemes late last year (Development Grants and Centres of Research Excellence) and will be used for basically all NHMRC schemes this year.
Monash Research Office will be holding an information seminar on RGMS. Research assistants and personal assistants are advised to attend the seminar and we look forward to seeing you all there.

Dr Meachem will present an informative and eye-opening information session on how the current political climate will impact on future NHMRC funding.
