Flagship Research Program

Western Alliance is pleased to open expressions of interest for its inaugural Flagship Research Program, which will see the allocation of a single grant of up to $200,000 towards solving a key problem, based on identified priorities from our health sector member organisations across rural and regional western Victoria.

Western Alliance has now funded over 30 individual research projects across the region, and using the strong foundation provided by our support for these individual projects, we are now looking to identify a key problem and support a program of research activity and capacity building that will assist in solving it.
