Waitematā DHB welcomes collaboration with external researchers. Many grant applications are now submitted online, and require processing by the 'Research Office' prior to submission to the funder. Notify the Research & Knowledge Centre as early as possible of your intention to apply for a grant. This is particularly important for HRC grants (minimum two weeks' notice required).
Any MoUs that are written as part of a grant contract need to be reviewed by the DHB Legal Advisors.
