Researchers may submit the same research project concept to another funding program and to the ADRF Research Grants. Researchers who are successful in seeking funding from another will not, however, be eligible for an ADRF Research Grant, for the same project and time period.
Yes, the fund can be used to pay a researcher who must be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident. These details will have to be included in the Full Applications.
The project could be submitted through your University and they need to agree to be the institution that manages the funds, should you be successful. The research project can be conducted off-site of the University.
Yes, you can.
No, the EOI only requires the applicant to confirm this. Approval will need to be demonstrated by researchers who are invited to submit a full application.

The EOI form only allows plain text, not figures nor tables.

The ADRF Research Grant Program is designed for researchers, academics and student researchers from Australian universities and research institutes who are working with CDEs and people with diabetes on research projects that aim to improve diabetes care, management and education. So this program is not just for people associated with universities.
Please list the university that will administer the grant in your application.
The lead investigator doesn’t need to be from a university nor a research institute. Generally, the researcher with the strongest track record relevant to the opportunity leads the project.
Is it possible to include international collaborators in the EOI?
Yes it is. There is no restriction on international collaboration. The EOI needs to include relevant argument and justification for their involvement, how they will contribute to the research outputs and how they will add value to the project team.
