2020 Research Infrastructure Investment Plan

For: 

The 2020 Research Infrastructure Investment Plan will continue to provide Australian researchers with access to modern and world-class national research infrastructure (NRI). It will enable advances in science, technology and knowledge; boosting productivity, creating jobs, and delivering economic growth.

Australian Government investments in national research infrastructure (NRI), through the National Innovation and Science Agenda and biennial Research Infrastructure Investment Plans, are consolidated through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) and have resulted in a mature and networked suite of national research infrastructure.

The 2020 Research Infrastructure Investment Plan (Investment Plan) provides continued support for Australia’s NRI facilities, as well as investment in emerging research priorities that were first identified as potential areas of support in the 2016 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap (Roadmap). 

This investment will support Australian researchers to remain internationally competitive and help maximise the potential for economic benefits from scientific discoveries. 

The full 2020 Research Infrastructure Investment Plan will be available shortly.
