The world is a fascinating place.
The Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) is a transformational initiative that enables Australian research community and industry access to nationally significant, leading edge data intensive eInfrastructure, platforms, skills and collections of high-quality data.
The ARDC platforms program seeks to increase the number of researchers with access to platforms, in terms of absolute number and in terms of diversity of disciplines. The 2020 platforms open call will continue to encourage reuse of existing platforms, components, and approaches.
We are establishing a portfolio of national scale data assets that support leading-edge research. Initially, we will have six programs that will involve partnerships with research consortia, national infrastructure facilities, research institutions, emerging collections as well as public and private sector stakeholders.
