Supporting your data and digital research challenges

Our ARDC staff are Australia’s national research infrastructure experts.

We have dedicated teams that provide advisory services to help you and your organisation accelerate your research, innovation and industry collaboration.

Our advisory services are available to researchers and research organisations around Australia. We also actively provide advice for research-industry collaborations and the data challenges involved in those activities.

Engagements team

Our Engagements team operates as a dedicated source for addressing your questions and needs proactively through a single contact point.

Supporting your data and digital research challenges and needs will help researchers in your organisation conduct data-intensive research more efficiently and effectively than ever before.

And it doesn’t stop there. We’re always striving to understand your changing strategic imperatives and respond to them accordingly. We do this by:

  • providing quick and effective support and advice from the expertise available across ARDC and beyond
  • raising awareness for existing services both within ARDC and beyond
  • helping to implement ARDC services both technical and human
  • connecting you with comparable organisations addressing similar challenges and issues through our communities.

Join a community

The Engagements team facilitates a range of communities, igniting discussions around latest themes and topics and facilitating the agreement and sharing of frameworks, standards and approaches. This means we’re working to not only meet but anticipate research needs and, in doing so, keeping Australia at the cutting edge of innovation.
