The development of an Australian research data commons involves us all.
To support this, we are establishing a number of small projects under our Discovery Activities program. The aim of our Discovery Activities is to gather a range of perspectives and approaches to creating a research data commons for our nation. To meet the program timelines, projects will be delivered through an open call process and targeted engagement. Projects developed are intended to align with some of our strategic themes and the outcomes from these small projects will form core discussions and presentations at our theme based summits:
- People and Policy: Transforming culture and community
- Data and Services: Maximising the value of Australia’s data assets
- Storage and Compute: Providing foundation infrastructure
Organisations, institutions, infrastructure providers, research agencies are able to participate in future ARDC programs and activities, regardless of their participation status in the Discovery Activities program.
Who is this project for?
- Peak bodies
- Research organisations
- Infrastructure providers
- Commercial eInfrastructure providers
- Government (state and commonwealth)
What does this project enable?
The Discovery Activities will provide information that will be useful to the ARDC and the sector when considering what an Australian research data commons looks like and provides a mechanism to engage a broad community of stakeholders to develop evidence-based strategies.
