AAHA Research Collaboration Fund

The fund

The Auckland Academic Health Alliance (AAHA) has an established research fund that is co-funded by A+ Trust and the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences. The fund supports joint research projects and develops relationships between the Auckland DHB and our FMHS staff.

It provides further opportunities to develop collaborative, translational research.

Through these ‘seed funding’ grants, the AAHA aims to directly encourage and boost relationships between FMHS and ADHB research staff, and to encourage researchers from both our organisations to further work together.

A number of longstanding research relationships already exist, and this fund has the potential to further strengthen these relationships by providing cooperative grant funding.

These collaborative translational research opportunities have the potential to contribute further to success in international and national research grant applications, such as those for the Health Research Council.


The AAHA calls for applications on an annual basis.

Applications open in September and close on Monday 5 October 2020.
