eResearch Infrastructure Connectivity (2015-2016)
The National eResearch Infrastructure Projects creates better connections between the capabilities provided by the various national eResearch infrastructure providers and the needs of data intensive NCRIS capabilities. Specifically, this involves connections between storage (typically collections held on RDSI nodes or other storage solutions), developing data-focused compute services (such as ones being developed through the NeCTAR Virtual Laboratories or other providers), and descriptions made available through Research Data Australia.
Public Sector Data (2010 - 2014)
Public sector data aims to make data and associated metadata available from government departments.
Open Data Collections (2014 - 2015)
The Open Data Collections program set about to uncover, describe and make data collections openly available. This funding provided institutions with a valuable opportunity to explore the work required on making a data collection available.
Major Open Data Collections (2014 - 2015)
The Major Open Data Collections developed internationally significant collections to provide institutions with a valuable opportunity to enhance research data assets, enable new partnerships to be formed, and enable new data intensive approaches that address significant research challenges.
Metadata Stores (2012 - 2014)
The Metadata Stores program assisted institutions and disciplines to better manage the collection and object level metadata associated with research data outputs and associated entities.
ARDC Applications (2012 - 2014)
The Applications program developed compelling demonstrations of the overall value of the ARDC by bringing together a range of data sources combined with new integration and synthesis tools to enable new research or generate new policy outcomes.
Seeding the Commons (2010 - 2014)
The aim of this program was to improve the fabric for data management in a way that will increase the amount of content in the data commons, and to improve the state of data capture and management across the research sector with a focus on the tertiary education sector, CSIRO and the NCRIS Capabilities.
Data Capture (2010 - 2013)
The Data Capture program simplified the process of researchers routinely capturing data and rich metadata as close as possible to the point of creation, and depositing these data and metadata into well-managed stores.
National eResearch Architecture Taskforce (NeAT) (2010 - 2012)
The National eResearch Architecture Taskforce (NeAT) projects were conceived as part of the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) under Platforms for Collaboration. They were designed as a way of creating infrastructure that responded directly to the needs of particular discipline communities.
