This NAIDOC Week, Australia’s national research infrastructure is celebrating Indigenous knowledge and research. First Nations knowledge and research has great potential to help solve some of our biggest research challenges. Australia’s national research infrastructure is engaging with Indigenous researchers, industry users and community groups across the country to tap into this potential, and to put research and data in the hands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Australia’s national research infrastructure is enabled by NCRIS, a $7.1 billion Australian Government Initiative supported by universities, state and territory governments and research organisations nationwide.
NCRIS is based on the principle of open, merit-based access. If you are a researcher or industry user wanting to find out more about the specific infrastructure available through NCRIS, visit the NCRIS portal.
To learn more about the data holdings and how to access them, please contact the organisations via the infographic.
The ARDC and Indigenous Knowledge and Research
At the ARDC, we are partnering with the Indigenous Data Network on the Indigenous Research Capability program to support the consolidation and expansion of its technological, training and governance initiatives. Learn more about the Indigenous Research Capability Program.
We are also excited to be co-investing in the Language Data Commons of Australia, which will support Indigenous Language revitalisation in Australia. Read the case study.
