We are pleased to share 3 Project Plans supported by the HASS Research Data Commons and Indigenous Research Capability Program.

The project plans developed by the Activity Leads for the HASS Research Data Commons and Indigenous Research Capability Program, received feedback from the community, and were evaluated by the ARDC and the program Advisory Panel. The successful project plans were announced on 1 November 2021.

The 3 projects are now underway. If you would like to reach out to the projects, please use the contact details provided under each project below.

We will update you regularly on milestones within the HASS Research Data Commons and Indigenous Research Capability via emails to those registered (register here if you’d like to join the mailing list), and news will also be shared via the ARDC Connect newsletter. Subscribe here.

The project plan for the Trove researcher platform will be open for consultation from 5 November 2021. Please visit the Trove page for more details on the consultation timeline.
