When oldies eat too much med research pie

The humanities and social science deans complain senior researchers have way too big a share of funding (CMM yesterday) – the MRI lobby thinks similarly

The Association of Australian Medical Research Institutes is unhappy with the age spread for “ideas grants,” the NHMRC programme which is “the primary funding source for early to mid-career researchers.” Apparently a majority go to “established senior researchers.”

AAMRI has a solution – a new Ideas pie.

In 2022 year 238 winners shared $240m in Ideas grants. AAMRI proposes an extra 241 grants exclusively for young researchers.
