Nectar Research Cloud

Our Nectar Research Cloud is Australia’s first federated research cloud. This service provides Australia’s research community with computing infrastructure and software. Researchers can store, access, and run data, remotely, rapidly and autonomously.

Research Data Australia

Research Data Australia (RDA) is an online portal for finding research data and associated projects, researchers, and data services. You can find, access, and reuse data for research from over one hundred Australian research organisations, government agencies, and cultural institutions.

Identifier Services

We provide services to create and manage persistent identifiers for research data, research samples, files, documents or other digital objects. Identifiers connect objects to important context surrounding the objects and adds value to them.

Research Vocabularies Australia

Research Vocabularies Australia (RVA) makes it easy to find and use controlled vocabularies used in research. It also makes it possible for Australian research organisations to publish, re-purpose, create, and manage their own controlled vocabularies.
