Last year, Bellberry launched a pilot grant program to support participant engagement at scientific meetings. Conference organisers were encouraged to apply for funding to create and/or enhance participant-centric programs, with the overarching goal of improving research by embracing the participant voice.

Bellberry was thrilled to receive a larger-than-expected number of high-quality applications. Successful applicants were:

  • The Health Services Research Association of Australia and New Zealand for the Health Services Research Conference, held in Sydney from 30 November to 2 December 2022; and
  • The Lung Foundation Australia for the Australian Lung Cancer Conference, to be held on the Gold Coast from 15 to 17 February 2023.

The second round of this grant program is now open with a deadline of 10 March 2023. Applicants can apply for a minimum amount of $1,000 and up to a maximum of $20,000 (ex GST). Funds must be expended in the 2022/23 financial year.
