The NSW Government established the Sports research and injury prevention grants in 1991 to provide funding to support sporting organisations and research institutions in their efforts to increase safer participation in sport and recreational activities. .

Over 50 important research projects have been funded by NSW Sporting Injuries into the prevention of injuries and improvement of safe sport practices including:

  • Do hard playing fields increase the risk of injury in community level Australian football?
  • Can plasma HSP70 be used to screen athletes at risk of injury from heatstroke?
  • A Review of Australian ACL reconstructions.
The sports research and injury prevention research grants have been postponed until further notice. All existing grants are business as usual.
