Data and Services Discovery Activities successful applicants

Categorised: IMPACT

In April 2019, the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) invited Australian research organisations, service providers and research groups that have a passion for all things data, to submit their project proposal for the ARDC’s Data and Services Discovery Activities.

This resulted in over 140 proposals across a wide range of disciplines and organisations. The proposals were assessed by a review panel, with each application assessed by two external panel members and one ARDC panel member.

The ARDC has now completed the reviews and is extremely pleased to announce a total of 42 successful applications: 32 in the ‘Transformative data’ program and 10 in the ‘Institutional role in a data commons’ program.
