Research Acceleration Programme (RAP)

RAP Stage I: The next deadline for funding consideration is 12pm 25th July.

RAP Stage II: Our second request for proposals this year will be released next week, with a deadline of 12pm 22nd August.

RAP Funding – what is it and how do I get it? Recently the Future Leaders module held an information session which comprised a general overview of RAP funding and its requirements, advice for submitting proposals, and there were some great questions asked. You can find the recording here.

The funding guideline documents are on our website – please reach out to medtechresearchnetwork@auckland.ac.nz if you have any questions.
