The ARDC is currently developing its five year strategy and capital plans. As part of the strategic planning cycle ARDC wishes to engage with a range of resource providers, institutions and research organisations, e-infrastructure providers, peak bodies and government.

To collect views on our strategy and capital plans we are currently organising statewide events.

Please see the Strategy Overview and Strategic Themes for further background information. The introduction and general discussion of the NSW consultation was recorded and can be watched on YouTube.

The introduction and general discussion at the QLD consultation will be broadcast through zoom. If you would like to watch and provide your views, please register through the 3rd Dec QLD event and select the Zoom attendance option. This zoom recording will also be available after the event.

We have set up a form to collect your input on the ARDC as a whole.

Please also contribute to our short survey of six questions that will inform our strategy around Skills. The focus is on the skills needed by the workforce that enables researchers to do data intensive research. The ARDC plans to continue the conversation around the possibilities of a more cohesive, national approach to skills development in 2019.

These forms will be open for feedback until Thursday 6 December COB.
