    • Recognising that brain and spinal cord injuries result in significant health and economic burdens for the affected individual and the community, the Victorian government committed $63 million towards neurotrauma research beginning in 2005. • A survey of Victorian neurotrauma research units conducted in 2008 showed substantial increases in workforce capacity, collaborative activity and research output during the first 3 years of the funding program. • Changes in economic and commercial activity, and research translation activity were also observed. • The activity and output of the Victorian brain and spinal cord injury research sector increased substantially during a period coinciding with increased funding.
