As part of the strategic planning cycle, the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) organised statewide consultations to engage a range of research infrastructure facilities, institutions and research organisations, e-infrastructure providers, peak bodies and government. These statewide events were an opportunity to provide input into the ARDC’s strategy and capital plan exposure drafts, which will be circulated later in December 2018. These sessions were run in seven states and well attended, both in person and virtually, and generated lively rich discussions on the priorities and direction the ARDC should focus on for the coming five years.
After the initial strategy discussion, delegates were given the opportunity to attend parallel sessions focusing on skills, infrastructure, platforms or FAIR and trusted collections.
NOTE: The State wide consultations were part of a broader process in which other stakeholders (e.g. other NCRIS facilities) were also consulted. These responses are not reflected on this page.
