  • promote collaborative and multi-disciplinary working via the FBMH Domains
  • help build capacity and capability in strategic priority areas 
  • capture and exploit strategic funding intelligence

SFT includes key underpinning research support mechanisms, the Fellowship Academy and the College of Experts. SFT administrative support assists with the planning and management of projects and initiatives.
