The ARDC has launched a newly refreshed website,, designed to meet the needs of the Australian research community. It is our response to our fast-growing research impact projects that the community can use to accelerate data-driven research. 

The revamped website provides researchers, research institutions, industry, digital research infrastructure providers, and other national and international partners with an easy-to-navigate central space for accelerating research and innovation in Australia and beyond. 

The site was redesigned with improved search functionality and an intuitive user journey. The development process incorporated extensive consultations with Australian researchers across all career stages and fields of research. We also consulted key stakeholders to better understand the needs of our partners in the digital research space.  

You can find the ARDC strategy, programs, projects, news, events and content-rich digital research resources on data management, infrastructure, research software, FAIR data guidance and more. 

The new site features a dedicated landing page for researchers, where you can find a curated selection of datasets, tools, services and guides on essential research skills. These cover topics such as good data practice, research software, sensitive data, cloud computing, and the building of digital research skills. 

The ARDC interim Director of Outreach, Keith Russell, said, “We are excited to launch our new ARDC website, which showcases the breadth of digital research infrastructure tools, communities and guides supported by the ARDC that help accelerate research.” 

The new website is the destination for all members of the research community to stay up-to-date on all things digital research. 

We would like to invite you to explore our new website and share it with your colleagues and partners as a valuable resource.


The ARDC is funded through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) to support national digital research infrastructure for Australian researchers.
